Faith enough

Exodus 32:11-14
But Moses implored the Lord his God, and said, “O Lord, why does your wrath burn hot against your people, whom you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, ‘It was with evil intent that he brought them out to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce wrath; change your mind and do not bring disaster on your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, how you swore to them by your own self, saying to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants like the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever. ’” And the Lord changed his mind about the disaster that he planned to bring on his people.

There are times
when our faith
small as it is
Has to be enough
for others too
Enough for those
who cannot see
beyond the confusion
or the hurt
or the evil
that affects their lives.
The God of compassion
listens to prayer
and honours faith, 
however wavering
gathering those 
who are beloved
of God
upheld by the prayers
of the faithful.
