Does the pinnacle seem too high above its foggy blanket?

Does each chasm on its craggy face seem too deep to forget?

Does the effort to ascend the peak fill me now with dread and fear?

Or will the challenge, once I start, quickly disappear?

"Oh, Almighty Father hear my prayer, before I start this awesome climb

so I'll not lose my courage or wait for a more convenient time.

Help me to face each problem that life puts in my way

So I'll ascend through foggy crevasses and stand on the pinnacle today.

I trust You, Heavenly Father, to guide each footstep that I take,

to keep me from tumbling downward when my life with disaster quakes.

I'm reaching for the highest peak above life's foggy shroud,

for You are standing firmly there dispelling every cloud.

I offer a sacrifice of joy and praise You on my upward climb,

for, God, You are so worthy of all my love all the time.

But if, perhaps, I fail to attain today's goal of life's lofty peak,

again I'll return to You in prayer and a new direction seek.


by Dorothea K. Barwick (c) 2001

Psalm 27:4-6 One thing have I desired of the LORD,
that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD,
and to inquire in his temple.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me;
he shall set me up upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up
above mine enemies round about me:
therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of jo
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
