Lord Jesus, you yourself had to say to Philip,
"Have I been with you all this time,
and you still do not know me?"
Thank you, Lord, for the reminder
that you know how that feels.
You know what it's like to have a friend,
whom you thought knew you,
say or do something that makes you feel
utterly misunderstood, unknown, unloved, unheard.
I cast all my cares on you,
for you care for me.
Friends may desert me
but you will uphold me forever.
