We do not know how to do what we know to do.
We do not know how to be what we know to be.
Our little lives, our big problems – these we place upon Your altar!
Pour out upon us whatever our spirits need
            of shock, of life, of release
            that we may find strength for these days –
            courage and hope for tomorrow.
In confidence we rest in Your sustaining grace
            which makes possible triumph in defeat,
            gain in loss, and love in hate.
We rejoice this day to say:
            our little lives, our big problems –
            these we place upon Your altar!


—Howard Thurman
