A Simple Prayer

the grace of breath
a gift extended from the hand of the Lord
not for my simple glory but for the Grandeur
of purposes too High
there is grace in life
a lifted beauty beheld from the eye of God
still I do not know
what His heart wants for me
the prayers created
from the wants and needs and desires
the covetuous nature of my humanity
God is jealous for me
Jealous with love
Let me not stir the fires of His passion
nor test the limits He has placed
“May I want what You want for me
“May these paths become an intersection
May they be so intertwined
that I do not recognize myself
apart from You

Wanting what I want, wondering if they are things He wants for me. Or if they are created from a covetous heart.
