    Prayers
    or words of praise
    honor one
    who rules all days
    he seeks our good
    forgives our bad

    We run to him when
    scared or sad and lonely
    Begging help
    or forgiveness
    promising penance
    for our sins

    Repenting passionately
    for the moment
    feeling cleansed
    we begin again

    I went searching for this....because I needed to be reminded of just how I do, sometimes.

    Repenting passionately
    for the moment
    feeling cleansed
    we begin again



    pricking me this morning. Thank you.

    :heart:

    Thank you so much Poets for your time, I really just needed this reminder myself, but thought I might share just in case someone else was in a similar place.
