Prayer, Rhyme

Like a Miracle

May He speak the words
That none could say
And touch your heart
Like a miracle
Today

Wrapping you closer
Than anyone could
And healing your soul
Like you’ve dreamed
He would

May you find rest
In His embrace
Filled with joy
Righteousness & grace
May you dwell 
In His House
For all your days

Story of a Girl

A little girl
Grew up one day
And through the years
Forgot to pray

It seemed so simple
How much did it change?
When God already
Had it all arranged?

Her heart drifted down
Wide paths that were new
And how quickly the past
Slipped from her view
She began to wonder
Is His love still true?
Was there hope for her
Though hope was not due?

She longed for her
Innocent
Childlike
Faith
When she knew God 
And she knew
She was safe

She closed her eyes
Could she still pray?
Would He listen to her
After she’d run away?

So many sins
Her heart did bear
And yet she knew 
That God still cared
Surely He was still out there

She whispered
Her prayer
Into the breeze
And hoped
It would drift
Higher than the trees

She closed her eyes
And gently breathed
The fresh air of early spring
She heard a bird 
Begin to sing
And the laughter of children
In the distance ring

The years began to come undone
Every sin she’d committed
Overcome
By the precious blood
Of Her Savior’s love
Born again
From above

She felt what she hadn’t 
Felt in years
God’s presence once again drew near
And washed away
Her guilt and fear
The future looked so bright and clear
Much the like the childhood
She held so dear

Yet life could not be the same
The lessons she learned
Had shaped her faith
She knew
The depth
The height
And length
The love of God
None can equate

She found His endless
Gift of grace 

A little girl
Came home to stay
And here her story
Will grow each day
As she bows her head
And humbly prays

Dear God
I’m Your
Little girl
Always

He Knows

He knows the future
I cannot see
And every way
I’m incomplete

He knows the questions
I do not speak
Every doubt
That’s hidden beneath

He knows my heart
Tattered and worn
Every sin I’ve committed
Since I was born

He knows every secret
Every dream
Every fear
He knows every longing
Every thing I hold dear

He knows me completely
Inside and out
Though
There’s things I wish
He didn’t know about
Yet
In His presence
He makes me new
And wipes my shame
From His view

What kind of love
Could this be?
Except the matchless
Love of the King
Who gives this gift
To all who’ll receive

He knows who I am
I am redeemed

Love’s Prayer

To the dear couples who have shown me the meaning of true love, and the importance of prayer in finding it. This poem is inspired by you.

What a peace
It is to know
That I’m praying
For you

And you’re praying
For me
Whether we’ve met
Or not

One day
We’ll meet
If it’s the Father’s plan
We’ll see
That love comes through prayer
And through prayer
We’ll keep
Strong
And true
Through whatever may be
Faith is the anchor
That holds
You and me
