FUTILITY

cold wind blowing
from Myanmar
the cries of God’s people
storming Heaven
to break the barriers
of hate
between brother and sister
how can love
feel so helpless

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness;
for we do not know how to pray as we ought,
but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.

  1. It is truly terrible what’s happening in the place we used to call Burma. But, so much strife in many places in the world. I don’t think I’ve known such an awful period in my life (far too young to remember WW2!!!). I fear we’re heading for something much worse than we already have. Gloomy view perhaps. Let’s hope things improve around the world.
