A Prayer to Enter God’s Presence

A small but elegant gate to a meadow path.

O Thou, far off and here, whole and broken,

Who in necessity and in bounty wait,

Whose truth is light and dark, mute though spoken

By Thy wide grace show me Thy narrow gate.

    Gosh, that’s beautiful. Wendell is one of my favorite writers, but I am more familiar with his stories and books.
