The Man You Have Called Me to Be

100_1620

As I get older Lord God, I am more amazed at how good You are to me

and my family. I know this earthly life is but a mist, rolling in

from the ocean, and soon this frame of mine will be

taken away, only to be given a more beautiful presence.

May I always be worthy of being with You,

and may I always be – the man

You have called me to be.

With Your Eyes

20171018_145710

Lord as we follow You, as we seek You,

as we love You,

as we walk with You,

along the trails You’ve given us,

may our doctrine not blind us

to loving people,

even all the people

You have made.

May we see Lord God,

people with Your eyes.

Amen.

A Prayer for Good Health

20161105_130136

As I get older Lord God, and this tent I’m living in continues to wear thin,

help me to take care of it, to respect this gift, the life you’ve given

and if it is Your will, please reduce the pain, give me wisdom

and keep me healthy. Amen.

In the Silence of the Heart

20170929_151331

Lord God when I was seventeen, I didn’t find You in the church,

I found You in the woods,

and in the silence of the heart.

Now that I’m older, I do read

the words sent down,

but I find Your presence in the woods still,

in the silence of the heart.

Always in Your Strength

20171018_150605

Lord God, I pray You would help me to be true to myself,

to be who You have created me to be,

even if I am different

or not far to the right,

empower me to speak

the poems in my heart,

to be filled with Your light,

and to walk always

in Your strength.

Amen.

A Prayer to Forgive

100_5553

Lord God, I confess I’m not really good at this, walking

with You is always refreshing, like a stream

through my heart, but to forgive?

Please remove these knives

from my back.

I do trust in You My God,

so help me to surrender even this

to You, I can hardly say

the words, “I forgive….”

Please help me

to keep forgiving.
