“Worship in the Rains”, a prayer poem from L. Willows (Belonging to God, Courage, God’s Love Pours)

Worship in the Rains

Worship, we worship in the rains-
when the skies are pouring grey,
when parts come letting bare before,
the night that longs for the wake of Day.

Let the hearts, all hearts be there and dare
when the clouds let loose and part,
when the rains come forth and summon Light
and God gives Love, all of Life a start.

When the rains pray praise and lift our gaze.
These, His fields become a Door.
We worship Him. All hearts outpour.
There in the midst of former haze-
Our God is more. His Glory soars.
