Prayer: Weak and Poor God

Here’s a thoughtful prayer from John van de Laar.

Weak and Poor God

Money talks and power makes the world go around,
   or so they would have us believe;
And we, forgetting that other voice,
   join the march in hopes that we may find a place
   among the rich and strong.

But, you, O God, feel no shame,
   fear no harm
      as you walk among the poorest and weakest
   feeling completely at home.

Thank you for the voice of your love
   that keeps singing of the power in weakness,
      the wealth in simplicity,
   and the freedom and safety that is found
      in walking your humble, serving way.
