MIDNIGHT - By Aaron D. Brown
a moment of reflection
on the causes of rejection

We dedicate all that we are to all that you will it to be.
Now unto thee whose essence is being, whose wisdom exceeds the limits of linguistic learning, whose power prevails; the infinite, indescribable, inexhaustible, incomprehensible, indefatigable, immutable, and eternal God who cradles the creation in the confidence of his care, bountifully bless us, lovingly lead us, regeneratively respond to us, empower us in the ephemeral enigmas of our existence, position our pathways mirroring your pre-eminence and power, may the shadows of uncertainty pale before the dawn of thy deliverance, in every fleeting moment feed our longing souls with fresh manna from on high, and present us faithful and faultless before the throne of thy eternal glory, in Jesus’ name, AMEN. Selah.
