WHAT TO ASK;Sketches of prayer

Here I am again God,falling on my knees today

 

Here I am again God,coming to praise and pray

 

Though many times before I came to ask and say

 

About all my pains and sorrows of everyday.

 

I find my heart soaked in your love as I delve deep into you

 

I find my soul with a peace treading beyond all the world could accrue

 

See you said that everything comes from you and belongs to you

 

I remember you promised never to leave nor forsake me

 

That in the palms of your hands have you engraved the name of me

 

 

My lips begin to ask and pray for this and that

 

Then I remember that you got my back in fact

 

Oh it now makes sense that my thoughts you know from a far off

 

In retract hence I search my heart to find so many needs and desires

 

Almost forgetting that you have already quenched the fires

 

That though I tread through them consume me they can not

 

And though they be huge waves or deep treacherous waters I still need fear naught

 

For thou oh God are my help in all

 

See you supply all my needs

 

All according to the riches and glory that in thee breeds.

 

 

So from query and requests I drift hence

 

Replacing the wants with more of praise

 

Remembering the grace and sufficiency of your presence

 

In me as you live and reveal the fulness of your essence.

 

 

Where the heart may fail may your praises abide,

 

where voice may cease let my spirit dwell in you

 

In all I do may you work in me

 

That in all things your name may be glorified.

 

 

PePa
