Tuesday Prayer: Appalling Sacrifice

Fearful God,
you require of our love
appalling sacrifice;
and your lasting promise
is contained in contradiction.
May we so lay on your altar
our dearest desires
that we may receive them back from you
as unaccountable gift,
through Jesus Christ, Amen.

-Janet Morely, in All Desires Known
