Zarephath Again

Lord God Adonai,
my defender and provider,
I pray again
as I have prayed before:
let it be to me and mine
as it was to the widow
of Zarephath.

You know our need of the moment;
you know our need in the future.
You know what is yet to come in,
and what is yet to go out.
You know the state of our jars,
the condition of our pantry.

I lean on you still,
I depend on you
to make much of little
and enough of not enough,
in Jesus' name, amen.

(based on 1 Kings 17:14)

We can ask nothing more, but of this, we can ask with all our heart. Thanks, Bob.
