At the end of the wick (a prayer)

The end is coming.
Darkness lies on the earth,
our batteries run down,
gas gauge in the empty zone,
printer flashing “low ink.”

The longest night draws near.
The news is unreadable.
We turn off the television,
or change the channel,
tune the radio to music.

The candles burn lower.
At the end of the wick,
we pray for fuel,
to be Your change in the world.
Burn in us, O Love!
