In these dark places

Standing within and before us
bathed in light
you extend a constant welcome
to our souls,
and yet we linger
in these dark places,
hoping we might find
that ache of fullness
for which we hunger.

And so,
as days grow short and dim,
help us to take this time to pause
and kneel before your throne
in humble application:
bless us Lord,
and come into our hearts anew.
Help us yet again to know
your beaming presence
in a life grown cold
with sacred longing.
