Increase our Faith!

We have dreamed
of a faith
to move mountains,
We would be
at the centre
of a buzz
of excitement
and amazement...

But, Lord,
you ask us
to forgive
and then -
to forgive again!
You call us
to a faith
that depends on you
when the security
of self-justification
and self-satisfaction
is all removed,
to a faith
that is vulnerable
because it lives
and acts
on the basis
of grace.

Yes, Lord,
increase our faith!
