Prayer

Lord what is this thing I do called prayer…
Is it just causal words flowing forth,
Or is it the soulful groaning that’s felt,
When You’ve given me a burden to bear.

O’ Lord surely in all things I should call upon thee…
But alas, I’ve come to learn that the things I want,
Are rarely the things You want for me!

I’m but a rough edged work still in progress,
More often than not stumbling to find my way…
And so what recourse have I Lord,
No matter how feeble, all I can do is continue to pray.

And so unto Thee Lord, will I make my feeble petitions known…
That perhaps just perhaps, the desires of my heart,
In time, will become more like that of Your own!

Artist's Description

Do we want God to give us the desires of our heart, or do we want God to give us our heart’s desire? Trust me there is a huge difference!
