A Prayer by John Birch:

Into the daily cycle of our lives
when all seems well
with us and with the world,
when our yoke is easy
and the burden light,
You break in
and scatter our complacency

Into the daily cycle of our lives
when we are comfortable
and at our ease,
when the fire is lit
but eyes are closed,
You break in
and challenge our dependency

You break into
our daily prayers,
humble hearts,
lay souls bare,
You break in,
You break in

You break in
when defences are down,
with an Angel’s shout
or the quietest sound,
You break in
You break in

And we change
and all things change
when you break in.
