You Taught Me to Pray

Engrained in my soul
Of early memory
How you taught me to pray
Your faith you shared with me

We’d pray every night
Your love of God to show
And like a young bird’s flight
In time you let me go

Through the season flow
From path I sometimes stray
Through knowledge of your prayers
Returning to the way

At your funeral
We join in the Lord’s prayer
Finding strength within
The love in which we share

Some Remain

A mass exodus
As worship now is through
Souls that have been blessed
Are sent to world with You

Some remain and linger
Resting now in prayer
Unable to let go
Of Your binding here

Savoring the message
Word is soaking through
A dwelling of the soul
Deepens now the view

Blessed be the faithful
Let soul be transformed
Instilled peaceful glowing
As silent halo forms

Gift of Solemn Grace

Sun setting on water
Shining path of light
Ripples of the spirit
Lifting of soul bright

Solitude of flower
In the forest deep
Silence of surrounding
Into being seep

Blossom of the falling
Blanketing the ground
Beauty of abundance
Given fruit abounds

Foliage of cover
Blessing of embrace
Filters noise of useless
Gift of solemn grace

Great Light Appearing

Going to bed earlier
Tomorrow an event
A great light appearing
One that’s heaven sent

In a burst of glory
Darkness cast away
Warmth within its’ touch
Blessed on all this day

With anticipation
Let our soul prepare
Gift of underserving
That You love to share

Masterpiece of beauty
Praise in our heart fill
Wrapped in peaceful silence
In soul Your hope instill

The Sunset Go

Sitting and watching
The sunset go
Perfect the ending
Of each day You show

As light is fading
All answer the call
To rest in the quiet
As peace covers all

Moonlight on watch now
A calming song sings
Trusting in comfort
Your providence brings

If we will partake
In gift here to see
Hear Spirit now whisper
Come share it with me

Senses Gift

A mornings’ time
That’s spent with thee
How wonderful
For us to be

To take stock
Of blessings sent
Each moment lived
That You present

With eye of heart
Of sight to see
With ear to hear
Your sweet beauty

With sense to feel
A touch of skin
Of fragrance deep
Breath to draw in

A savors’ taste
Or sour sweet
A sixth sense
Of prayer complete

Let’s pause this day
To exercise
The senses gift
For the wise

Prayer of Exhaling

Muscles are tight
Stress here prevailing
Surrender unto
A prayer of exhaling

Acknowledging Presence
You are always here
You know of my challenge
We’ll release it to prayer

In breath of the deep
Let Spirit now flow
Infusion of trust
Now let all go

Breath of the cleansing
Exhaling, replay
Peace of the stilling
Let love find its’ way

Presence Real

On knee before You
With an offered prayer
Please bless this time
In Your presence here

In power of Presence
Please now be real
Of mysteries gift
To human reveal

Cast away doubt
Spirit flow through
True faith believing
The graces of You

Open the gateway
Let us adore
Unbounded surrender
Flow though my pores

Oh mystery great
Past this world transcend
Let mind just believe
And let soul comprehend

Right Here

Let thought rise above
May soul be aware
To be blessed in this moment
Right now and right here

Make the connection
Through soul offered prayer
Be blessed in this moment
Right now and right here

Good is our God
In soul always near
A blessing of moment
Right now and right here

Grace be bestowed
Of souls vision clear
Eternal blessed moment
Right now and right here

Purpose incited
Of binding to share
Be blessing of moment
Right now and right here

Draw Deep

Draw deep of silence
Of quiet to be
Surrender embarking
Gift to be free

Draw deep of desire
Needing to be
Seeking, embracing
Gift of unity

Draw deep of prayer
Of love to be
Binding entwining
Gift of intimacy

Draw deep of Spirit
Of moving to be
Heaven encountered
Gift of divinity
