I Pray

 

I pray for a place of Power,

where kings shall reside in Peace.

I pray for a Heavenly foundation,

where God’s wisdom grows

alone, untouched, and only believed.

 

I ask for a brighter Tomorrow,

and a Son-shining today.

Where there is no room for misery,

nor is there room for pain.

 

I have faced adversity,

and tribulation came to visit me.

God’s love never failed.

 

It is true what it says in the Bible,

His love proves eternal

and even withholds the test of time.

 

My Lord is loving,

His Kindness, Compassion, and Love endure forever.

I can’t believe

how much He loves me.

 

He protects me with High Mountains,

and His Valleys run deep.

Yet there is no explaining,

all the good He has done for me.

 

I have known a great amount of tears,

I have watched defeat and have been defeated.

 

I have been sick,

and I have been blessed.

But all the while Risen

through Him who loves me.

 

I have carried my cross.

The weight of it was sometimes heavy,

and my shoulders were burdened.

Pain bombarded me

for days on end, continuing.

 

Many times I thought there was no such thing as healing.

There was no hand to lend itself,

so I thought about giving up.

 

I was wrong, mistaken, deceived

the Lord brought me through.

 

Each dream, each episode of my life

was given to me through visions before it was perceived.

And finally–my faith walk was complete.
