What do I do, Lord

when I’m feeling overwhelmed
by waves of work or worry –
without a moment to breathe
deeply enough to perceive my
need to pray?

I don’t want to keep sighing
or fixing my focus on
anything but you!

And yet, I do.

Forgive me, Father! Lift me
higher than this heaviness
and into a deep desire
for heavenly praise of You.
