Offering of Light

An offering of light
Is blessed unto this earth
A miracle of witness
This new day given birth

A pasture of receiving
Of warming love is known
A gentle touch of joy
In dews’ sparkle is shown

Knowledge of dependence
Of all life to subsist
Response of prayer is glimpsed
In field of rising mist

A prayer to fall into
Of our soul bind within
In gratefulness of way
As the way begins…

Bless Me a Morning

Bless me a morning
One nice and clear
Your Presence abiding
Draw fresh of the air

Wrap me in birdsong
Sing to soul sweet
Creation awaken
Possibilities greet

Lift me to blue sky
Soft the clouds white
Praising Your glory
Bathe me in light

Lift branches high
Roll pastures green
Stir soul’s direction
To You in the scene

Another Novena

Another novena
To offer up too
May this be different
A changing of view

You know my desire
My wants and my needs
Let my request
To Your will, concede

Oh Lord I am grateful
Of Your love so true
Whatever’s before me
May I trust in You

Oh Lord I am sorry
For I sin against You
Rejoice in Your mercy
Let me forgive too

You are all that I need
With me to cope
Letting You be
My source of all hope

Let me repeat
These thoughts each day
Leaving some time
To hear what You say

A Prayer that Never Fails

Saw a slip of paper
A novena to prevail
Recipe of 9 days
“A prayer that never fails”

Thought of contemplating
No matter the details
When shared with humble heart
That no prayer ever fails

Because our God is perfect
A greater plan thereof
His gift of answer blessed
Is One of only love

We can be persistent
Praise and love adore
Practice to be grateful
To trust in Him some more

The Greatest Commandment

The greatest commandment
That Jesus imparts
“To love your Lord God
With all your heart”

I want to do this
But don’t follow through
Let’s be of Your Presence
For this moment or two

Focus of mind
With strength give control
A giving of heart
Love through the soul

Still I can’t do it
Let my will concede
Our source of love
Oh Lord, You I need

With love overflowing
In binding love true
Loving you here
Is easy to do

There’s a second part
To share with neighbor too
Always remember
To love yourself too!

Mary Of the Light

Dwelling in the garden
In scent of flowers bright
Found in holy space
Is Mary of the light

Beauty of surrounding
Still this sacred air
A simple conversation
Is One within our prayer

Love of her outpouring
A gift for everyone
Song of her desire
A knowing of her Son

Resting in sweet comfort
Peace surrounds this place
Humbleness of being
Encountering of grace

Settle Now the Deep

In a world that’s swirling
Here, let the quiet seep
A prayer of nourishment
To settle now the deep

That of simple resting
Spirit pray in me
Inner of the dwelling
A letting to just be

Gift of new foundation
Moving into You
Lens of the refocus
Vision birthed anew

Center of perspective
Binding at the core
Blessed affirmation
Love to be outpoured
