branches snap
under my feet and I think
I could break
just as easily

my prayer is dry
my soul is parched

I need to be drenched
with the consolations
of Your sweet love
my Jesus

fill me
until I overflow
quench my thirst
for You


  1. Anne, your poem is beautiful and I love your blog. When I get up in the morning, I publish my posting [prepared the night before],grab a cup of coffee and pop on to your site. It was the name of your blog that 1st grabbed my attention[Jeremiah is one of my favorite books in the bible],but it is the beauty of your words and love for God that brings me back.

  2. Anne,
    This prayer is so beautiful and reflects how I too sometimes feel. This a prayer I will come back to to pray in those dry, desert~like times.
    Thank you and God Bless!
