Crazy Prayer

Thank you, God,
for making the gospel crazy talk,
insane chatter,
a foolish message that we just don't get.

Thank you for confusing us,
sending us on goose chases in pursuit
of a rational message, clarity of speech,
when your message is complete nonsense.

Thank you for making our weak
inchoate mumblings

"Jesus" "Cross" "Lord"

Your foolishly weak way
of saving the wise, strong world
