My Prayer


I open blinds and look upon
a scene that is pure poetry.
Cobalt blue waters ebb and flow.
I feel their tidal urge in me.

The Spanish moss drapes ancient oaks,
and pelicans, on pilings, sleep.
Great Egrets soar above salt grass,
as seagulls dive into the deep.

And as I gaze upon this scene,
I keel in prayer for my friend.
“Dear Lord, please lend her of Your strength.
We love her, Lord, please help her mend.”

My faith is strong, my patience, too.
In circle, prayers, sent Your way.
“Please heal dear Lyra, precious God.
It is in Jesus’ name I pray.”

I join you also and with all of us joining in prayer, God will hear us and shower her with his loving mercy and healing.

Hugs for a wonderfully written prayer for our Lyra...Marti

Michael,
Well done. Amen.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

The more voices added to your wonderful prayer for our dear friend Lyra, the more powerful it becomes. From our lips to God's ears.
