But I Have Prayed For Thee

-Luke 22:31-32

“Behold, Satan hath desired to have you,
that he might sift you as wheat…”

Here in my anguish
my defeat,
I believe He’s won.

I’ve come undone.

Faith lies rumpled
like discarded clothing
at my feet.

The sifting of my soul
nearly complete.

“But I have prayed for thee…”

Could it really be?
A Father’s Son,
a Savior,
on His knees,
in prayer
for me?
