With You

I prayed for you this morn’
Before the throne of grace
Bonded in Christ’s love
One in His embrace

He has crossed our paths
In wisdom of divine
Blessed to share with you
This journey here of mine

Prayer not of the wanting
But being three in One
Passage through this prayer
You’ll feel the love of Son

Safe within His arms
On Him we will depend
Acceptance of His will
His Spirit to you send

Leaving with this thought
Though not with you today
The joy within His light
He’ll bless you in some way

Heart Emotions

What is of the feeling?
Of my heart right now
Could I take a moment
To give to You somehow?

Name to the emotions
Frustration, worry, fear
Injustice, hopelessness
Identify them here

Dwelling in my heart
Acknowledge feeling deep
Where You dwell within
Place them in Your keep

Repeat of letting go
Drifting, setting free
Blessing that You grant
The emptying of me

Vacuum of the soul
Love now fills this space
Gratefulness abounds
A heart now filled with grace

Two Candles

Two candles in Your presence
Flowers praise below
Simplicity of statement
That you’d like to show

Resting on the altar
Upon a linen white
One of sacrifice
Emitting Spirit bright

Radiance of Presence
Shines within the now
Captured in the soul
Word spoken by thou

Word is only love
Echo in the deep
Shine this love today
Through word and action seep

Two candles in the bond
By Presence of our Lord
Heaven touches earth
All of one accord

Sheet of Light

Something happened to my soul
Not sure what it was
Through journey of the deeper
Something Spirit does

Walking with the Spirit
Carried by the Word
Letting go of me
To let His voice be heard

Beauty of the scripture
Through wisdom of Lord spoke
In holy of divine
A vision that awoke

Dimension of new light
Cast a love profound
Molding of unknowing
Inserted in the ground

Seed of insight planted
Grow within my way
Nurturing the gifting
To sprout Your love today

Summer Sunday Evening

August summer evening
Sunset songs it’s song
Green leaves are rejoicing
Join in and sing along

Southern breeze caresses
Waves of diamond shine
Sky of empty willing
Pour into heart of mine

Prayer begun in morning
Connects in end of day
Serves as sweet reminder
You blessed me in the way

Rest in solemn praising
My God of drawing me
Drop of faith in growing
Closer now to thee

Blessed Silence

Into room of silence
Time of blessed prayer
One within the intimate
My God is always here

Open arms extending
Loves embrace is found
Resting place of home
Acceptance here surrounds

Taking what is offered
Fragments of my will
Growth of gentle crafting
Desires are fulfilled

Naked soul exposed
Sin upon display
Fountain of His Mercy
Cleansed within His way

Journey of the deeper
Ahead eternal lay
Light forever drawing
Through this moment, pray

One of Letting Go

Come before me now
A practice here to know
Gift of freedom flowing
One of letting go

Breath drawn of the deep
Exhale to release
Worries of dispelling
Fear begins to cease

Intent of emptiness
Prayer of letting go
God of my fulfillment
Faithfulness You show

Bask in warming light
Drawing Spirits breath
Binding into One
Arising life from death

Adrift within pure love
Floating where You will
Center drifts within
Gifts that You instill

Caution of the Soul

Statement of tongue flowing
Word, that I need You
Caution of the soul
List for You to do

One of problems fixing
That things will go my way
Some for friends of healing
Their illness go away

Prayer I’m selling short
A box to put You in
New place now to start
Forgiveness of my sins

Soul that needs a cleansing
Through mercy born anew
Heart that needs some changing
By only love from You

Prayer of offered will
To lean on You this day
Prayer of brother bonding
One body in the way

Love here of receiving
Gratefulness engrains
Joy of overflowing
Needing here remains

Foundation of Love

Looking at my old home
With eyes of far away
Memories are flowing
Soul something to say

Viewing trail of goodness
Gratefulness arise
Gifts seen through these eyes
Of loves foundation laid

Grateful for Your blessings
Ones which touch the heart
Acts of loving kindness
Throughout the years impart

Thought secure in comfort
Blessed in loves embrace
Souls which sent Your love
Unselfish acts of grace

Engrained deep in the crafting
The molding of my soul
People of Your sending
Submitted play a role

Love endures forever
Message here flows through
Treasures of eternal
Which only comes from You
