PRAYER

Posted on: October 10, 2012

I was cleaning out folders in my e-mail today and I came across one called NOTES. I don’t even remember making that folder so I clicked to see what was in it and I found a poem that I had started writing on Aug. 20 of this year. My heart was heavy that day, though I didn’t {and still don’t} know why. I have days like that where my heart feels so sad and I’m crying but don’t know why. I began reading the poem and as soon as I got to where I had stopped, He immediately gave me the last two lines. How fitting that I found this today.

I know why my heart is sad today. A sweet, sweet lady who was a friend to me and many others was, as her daughter put it, “promoted to Heaven” this morning. Please be in prayer for her family and friends.

A PRAYER FROM MY HEART

 I sit here with tears streaming down
Tears I don’t fully understand
Unless I’m feeling the hurt
Of my loved ones across this land

 In my heart I feel such an ache
It seems it would explode
If I tried to hold back the tears
So I’ve learned to let them flow

 I’m sick of the enemy’s tactics
How he pokes and sneers and jabs
Thinking he’ll have the last laugh
He doesn’t care who he nabs

 He does his best to destroy
All we know and love
We’d best fall on our knees
And cry out to the Lord above

 I know that I have failed
Haven’t really done my part
I need to spend more time in prayer
Crying out to God from my heart

I come now and ask forgiveness
From My Father, He’ll freely give
I ask Him to keep me close
And help me for Him to live.
