PRAYER

In Religion on June 4, 2014 at 5:16 pm

I was cleaning up files on my desk top today and found this. I wrote this prayer several years ago. I was going through a particularly hard time in my life. As I read it I was instantly taken back to that time and situation. I remembered how sad and desperate I felt. I couldn’t imagine it getting better ever. Surprise, it did. It is good to remember what we have been through in life. It reminds us of how strong we truly are. What seems impossible to handle today will one day be nothing more than a memory. We always come out the other side. Maybe a little tattered but wiser.

A simple prayer

Raise me up above it all, so that I may see far and clear.

Raise me up above the heart ache of the world, and take away my fear.

Raise me up high above my own sorrows, so that I can draw others near.

Raise me up and speak your truth, for I am ready to hear.

Raise me up far over your majestic mountains, to see the might of your many seas.

Raise me up into your mercy, so that humble gratitude I may see.

Raise me up and carry me, so that I may walk with thee.

Then gently set me back upon the earth and shine your light through me.

Help me to be your humble messenger oh lord, your servant to the lost and those in need,

So that they too can be raised up dear Lord so that they can walk with thee
