So many questions, Holy One.
I see people struggling, asking.
They’re waiting, wondering.
They’re thinking and praying.

I, too, have many questions.
I’m struggling, asking.
I’m waiting, wondering.
I’m thinking, praying.

So I, like Your son Jacob,
will wrestle with these questions.
I, like Jacob, will wrestle with You.
And I will not let go of You.

I will grapple with You,
Knowing deep within that You
Bring the incredible blessing
And peace of Your Holy Presence
Into the midst of the struggle.

Inspired by Genesis 32:22-31 and all who wrestle with God and the struggles of life.
