    A Longing for our Father

    The days of walking
    The weeks of wanting
    The months of needing
    Sometimes pleading
    For things we don’t have (or need)

    Weeping
    Over failed relationships
    In dire need of that one true friendship

    “I need this…”
    We quip

    Confusing our wants with our needs
    As we fall to our knees
    And plead

    “O, Father…Help me, Please…”

    Yet,
    Failing to ask for that one true gift
    “Wake me up, tomorrow.
    Don’t forget about me, Father.”
    Before our bowed heads lift

    But we can be Selfish in our wake up
    That’s why He passed the cup
    …The cup of the blood of His Only Begotten Son’s life
    The blood
    That sees us through our strife

    Even
    Over the years you’ve lived
    Refusing to give to our Father
    His due
    Only thinking ‘bout
    You

    The months of needing
    And weeping
    When pleading for forgiveness
    Was all you needed (to do)

    The weeks of wanting
    Something
    Anything
    But nothing would satisfy our lust
    And trust in the Father
    Isn’t about
    The SELFish
    Us

    So,
    We continue to walk
    To want
    To need
    And plead
    On bended knees
    Never truly knowing (believing in) HE
    He who can do
    ALL THINGS
    Save us from our sins

    Make

    U
    S
    W H O L E

    G
    A
    I
    N

    AMEN

    “Ask…and you shall receive”

    FATHER...

    i ask that you guide the stroke of our pen
    to cleanse
    mind and soul
    that others might
    hear...and come to know
    the truth
    of the stories we tell

    i further ask that you help us
    in our word choice
    and temper our voice
    that those who would hear us
    will take it into their heart
    and come to trust
    our written words

    it is through your son
    Jesus Christ
    that i ask this.

    AMEN.

    (this is my prayer for us)
