Voice of Pentecost

Suddenly from the sky
A noise like a strong wind
Appeared as tongues of fire
Which came to rest within

Filling with the Spirit
Tongues different but the same
Enabled by the Spirit
Each they did proclaim

Wisdom for the chosen
Each of us a choice
Moved within the Spirit
For us to find our voice

Blessing us a mission
A purpose each our own
A humble way of sharing
Making our God known


Christianity is not
Doing the right thing
Being a good person
Or even what we bring

To be a Christian
Is a grafting into
The body of our Christ
The very soul of you

Into the dynamic
For us to be drawn
To inner life of God’
Which Holy Spirit spawns

Children by adoption
Gifted by His grace
Into Gods own life
A treasure to embrace!

From this, all does flow
Doing the right thing
Being a good person
His love is what we bring

To Listen Without A Lens

Grant me the grace Oh Lord
Your wisdom to us send
Encounter with a soul
To listen without a lens

Be no paradigm
No judgment to construe
Bless me an open ear
No objective to pursue

Echoing their feelings
Compassion to convey
Granting them the gift
Of what they need to say

A space of comforting
Freedom to reveal
Voice within the deep
What they truly feel

Accepting of what is
Bring it unto to You
Giving You a chance
To cast it in Your view

The Great Turnaround

Let us pause a moment
Of mystery, profound
Encountering our Jesus
In the great turnaround

Intentional or not
Love in which to share
Heaven to this earth
A reaching out to care

We’re going to find Christ
In our daily view
Truly in the ones
We came to give Christ to

You think you’re helping them
Joy in the breakthrough
When in fact they are
Being Christ to you

Grains of Time

Awakening unto
Precious grains of sand
A little gift of time
Is placed into our hands

One of our unknowing
Be many or be few
As within Your way
Let’s offer them to You

May souls desire be
Of binding with You here
In serving those in need
And blessed in time of prayer

When placed in Your Presence
We pray that we will see
A simple grain of sand
Binds to eternity

Space of Spirit

Space of Spirit
As is the air
Is always here

Born on the day
For all the lost
Of passions breath
Last one from the cross

Breath of desire
Of offering
Awaiting acceptance
Binding to bring

Intentional clearing
Of inner space
Through breath of the soul
One Spirit embrace

Nothing More

Let me share with you
A prayer that’s going ’round
If we truly live it
We’ll see that it’s profound

“Thy will, O Lord, be done.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
And Nothing else. Amen.”
Let my soul profess

Though difficult to live
Repeating these words be
A prayer to mold the heart
A change in my will, see

Using gifting’s blessed
In light of kingdoms view
In good times and in bad
Trust to place in You

A Prayer of Consent

All powerful God
Creator of soul
Master of all
Yet you bless us control

Of our decisions
To choose our way
Let us regift it
With You to pray

Intent of the humble
Here in this moment
We offer you now
A prayer of consent

Let us open the door
Soul now to still
In your trusting hands
Flow into your will

Found This to Be

They say, He will love you
Though not deserving
I’ve found this to be

They say, follow His way
To live scripturally
When lost He’ll guide
I’ve found this to be

They say, you can trust Him
To watch over me
In life’s reflection
I’ve found this to be

They say always pray
Joy in His Presence
I’ve found this to be

So join me my brother
As “they” become we
Joy in the sharing
I’ve found this to be

You Added Sound

A wonderful blessing
The sweet gift of morning
You graced even more
With bird song adorning

Losing oneself
In the vast open sea
With calming waves sound
The soul at rest be

With flash of a smile
Two souls to lift
Followed with laughter
A heartwarming gift

In covering of darkness
The stars glisten bright
Peacefulness sounds
In silence of night

In our communing
In sweet time of prayer
Love is the message
Word spoken so clear
