Poetry Sunday ~ I Pray

2 Sam. 7: 27 For thou, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee an house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee.

I Pray

Now I’ll kneel me down to pray
Lord I know not what to say
The world is filled with so much hate
I pray to you, it’s not too late.

Just because they read the news
They feel the need to share the blues
My prayer is for them to open their eyes
And see some beauty within the lies.

I’ll pray they have an open heart
To give out love as their new start.
To not be overcome with guile
That they instead would give a smile.

As I kneel me down to pray
Please have mercy as they stray
Grant us peace here on earth
Allow in men to see their worth.

Now my knees begin to hurt
For man who sleeps in earthly dirt
Will you love them once again.
Show them grace, I pray, AMEN!

Ephesians 4:32-33 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
