Prayer

Birds sing unrestrained,

Dogs barks unflinched,

Lizard’s nod unabashed,

But, once…

I questioned my faith,

I asked…

Do you ever listen?

Has my prayer ever reached you?

 

For so long I am challenged,

My doubts wrestle within me,

My sins caused me to stagger,

My iniquity intoxicated me,

I was suppressed by guilt and shame,

My knees gave in to my distress,

I was brought low by misdeeds,

My reasoning failed me.

 

I was abashed,

Totally flawed,

Until you whispered to me…

Come just as you are,

Come to me in prayer,

Forget every tide.

 

I divide seas,

I calm storms,

I make bitter rivers drinkable,

I give life.

 

Praise God! praise God!

I lift my voice in relentless prayers,

I come to you unabashed,

Oh, bless the Lord, for He listens to every prayer of faith.

Dear God,

My lord, My king

My father, My savior

My friend, My lover

My defender, My rescuer

My shield, My provider

My redeemer, My deliverer

My hope, My guidance

My comforter, My overseer.

How are you doing today?

I hope I’ve not hurt you much?

You know…

Sometimes I wonder…

What you think of me?

I wonder…

What you think about me right now…

Are you sad about my conducts today?

I also wonder…

Did I ever

Make you smile

I hope…

I hope I have ever for once made you smile

Well…

Until then

When I see you face-to-face

I sure

You will give me answers

You will get to answer my speculations

And my questions too

Until then, I beg you

Don’t get so mad at me

Because of my conducts

Each day

Don’t get so mad

Don’t get so sad

Because of me

Today and every other day

Know that…

I love you

I always do love you

And I wish above all

To do your will

I want you to know

I will keep pressing to be good

Today, and every other day

love you!!!
