Apostasies

from the bible challenge blog

God forgive us our
daily apostasies: the
taking of your name in vain,
faking faith, defrauding love;
the times we fail to
call on you at all;
the many ways in which
our worship turns in upon
ourselves, our souls, our bodies.
Turn us, tell us,
compel us for we
will not follow willingly
for long.
