Retreat Prayer #2

Psalm Of One Who Feels Lost

Jesus, our shepherd God,
if you're a shepherd
surely you should know
that leaving ninety-nine
to look for one
is kind of absurd ...

It that your message?

Is your love for us a little bit absurd?

Is that what you're trying to tell us?

I just want you to know
that every time I feel lost
I remember your story
of the lost sheep.

You can leave ninety-nine
to look for me any day
even if it is a little absurd.
