One Hour / Matthew 26:40

“Couldn’t you watch with Me even one hour?”
He asked, His sorrow not yet heavy,
His agony not yet drawing blood

They, His leaders, day in, day out
Asleep, out of step with the moment’s immensity

We too sleep
Standing watch
Instead of ministering

“Couldn’t you watch with Me even one hour?” He asks

  • As the widower alone and weary gardening on the corner lot
  • As the maiden aunt sitting in a wheelchair at a nursing home
  • As the Goth girl draped in black crepe hiding an empty heart
  • As the geek guy lost in World of Warcraft with only virtual friends
  • As the fairy princess latched up alone until Mommy comes home from work
  • As the recovering addict looking for a quiet cup of coffee

The God of all the universe, alone, weary, scared sees His People in His image alone, weary, scared

We His disciples are asleep, not able to watch even one hour
