Prayer by Bonhoeffer

O God,
Early in the morning do I cry unto Thee.
Help me to pray,
and to think only of Thee.
I cannot pray alone.
In me there is darkness,
But with Thee there is light.
I am lonely, but Thou leavest me not.
I am feeble in heart, but Thou leavest me not.
I am restless, but with Thee there is peace.
In me there is bitterness, but with Thee there is patience;
Thy ways are past understanding, but
Thou knowest the way for me.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
