A Real Prayer

When we come to Jesus
With prayer to appeal
Jesus wants us
To be fully real

If we are afraid
Or fall sinfully
Our Lord loves a spirit
Of humility

If we don’t believe
Or don’t see clearly
Our Lord loves a heart
Of true honesty

If a prayer of silence
Or our knees to fall
Our Lord truly loves
Any prayer at all

For whatever we pray
His precious grace flows
What we really need
He already knows

Eucharistic Adoration precedes Eucharistic celebration.

The Real

I treated it 
Symbolically 

When Monstrance was 
Set before me 

A moment of  
Intensity

Came over me 
So painfully 

And sweeping through
So joyfully 

The blessing of
Reality 

Come, rest, learn, eat
Of Presence be

And now I see
With clarity

The truth within
This mystery

He really is
He IS REALly

Most Real

In this world misleading
Truth to reveal
We all want to know
What’s really real

I need to see it
Not a concept conceive
I must experience
To fully believe

Deep within prayer
I know what I feel
Here of Your Presence
Is the most real

What we see, touch and taste
Will pass away
Your Presence eternal
Always will stay

Our God is Real

All life’s an unveiling
Of soul to reveal
Through glimpses of love
That our God is real

Of miracles birth
Of life to instill
The first act of love
Is to bless us our will

Bonding to share
Of souls blessed to me
With acts of loves blessing
Is our family

Within everyday
Such wonders to see
Of miracles blessed
In natures beauty

A knowing beyond
Found within prayer
Word of the Spirit
A miracle, share

Presence So Real

A treasure of time
Of deep sense to feel
One of the soul
Your Presence so real

A glorious dwelling
Of being so free
Embraced in Your love
Of resting to be

Word of unspoken
Of sharing is known
An intimate binding
The known of unknown

Desire of the soul
A beautiful staying
Stoking the flame
A letting of praying

Warm is the aura
A halo of light
Response of the soul
Glows with delight

Let You Be Real

Who are you Jesus
That I seek to find?
A mystery great
Of man and divine

Healer, consoler
Where wisdom is found
Hope of the lost
Turns the world upside down

Move out of the box
With truth to reveal
A friendship to grow
Please let You be real

Let go of perception
In prayer, may You just be
With transforming love
Found in humility

Feeling So Real

How can the unseen
Feel here so real?
Awareness in soul
Your Presence reveals

In cloud of unknowing
Way accessible
Divine mystery
Is so tangible

A step of submitting
Submerging into
Embrace of accepting
Surrounded in You

Gift of absorption
Of grace, love and peace
One day eternal
This taste never cease

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
