Prayer for Restoration

Hadassah Treu

Jun 1, 2023

"I long to see the nearing restoration..."

I need you in the ruins of my heart,

In all the wounded, desolated places,

Where darkness comes in as a flood,

I need your tender, healing grace.

Restore the ruins of my life

Search out all the cracks and gaps,

Invade them, filling them with light,

Erase all paths to pain, all maps.

I long to see the nearing restoration,

To see it coming like the rising sun

To hear it calling every ruin to alteration,

Preparing them for the life to come.

When all the broken becomes a space,

Completely ruled by love and grace.
