    Black Hole, A Prayer for Those Going Through Dark Places
    By: Shirley Vickers

    Oh God
    I'm right back in that limbo world again. 
    Can't feel you close to me.
    Can't feel anything.
    It seemed as if things were fine -
    Walking in the light.
    Then suddenly panic: it's all dark:
    I'm drowning.

    Worries - no more than there were before -
    And yet they are now so heavy.
    So unsolvable,
    So endless,
    Sucking me down -
    And I'm listening to the enemy
    Who is condemning me to death
    With his sly lies.

    Doctors tell us that feeling 'low'
    Is just like any other illness -
    brought on by stress, hormones, exhaustion,
    Debility,
    Then why do I feel so guilty about it?
    So powerless to drag myself out?
    So unguarded?

    Where is my knowledge of you being there -
    Right beside me -
    Part of me?
    While my feelings scream
    That because I'm like this
    I have failed you,
    Therefore I am less than nothing -
    useless rubbish?

    Please give me the disciplined mind,
    To refuse to entertain these trespassing thoughts -
    Which have no right to be there
    Because I am your child -
    To wait quietly in faith,
    Until my receiving equipment is repaired
    and switched on again
    And I can feel you
    Filling me with your big heart,
    Forgiving
    Empowering
    And re-mobilizing me,

    Where you have been all the time.
