Prayer: Lord, we believe

Lord, we believe,
help our unbelief.
We believe in you:
Show us your face.
We believe you love us,
though you test our faith.

In darkness and doubt,
in suffering and despair,
we cling to that faith 
with bleeding fingernails..

Lord, our God, we cry to you:
from the depths of Sheol,
we call your name.

Show us your mercy,
lest we lose hope.
Break down the gates
that hold us captive,
and blind us with the light
of your dazzling darkness
