How ready am I – a “maranata” prayer

To see the Lord descending from the sky,
And saints a-wing to meet him, with them I
Ascending, weightless, leaving far below
The cares of earth, the minutes empty and slow,
O God, I ask: Let Jesus come today —
How ready am I to fly away!

–J. Randal Matheny

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
