My heartfelt prayer

This is a prayer that came to me early one morning shortly after my mother’s passing, and I realized I was not alone but surrounded by all of the Lord’s goodness, his glory, his Shekinah glory and his Kabode glory. It was an insightful time for me then and still is……thought to share this morning.

Éyawyan…

Your Mighty Hand is in the storm       (Job 37:5-13)

But your eye is on the smallest of those whom you’ve created   (Matthew 10:29-31)

The Splendor of Your Breath    (Job 4:9)

Is upon the tree tops

While the hindmost parts of Your Glory

Rests upon the flowers and other little ones    (Exodus 33:18-23)

The strength of Your Breath   (Genesis 2:7)

Prevails upon me   (2 Samuel 22:16)

While the softness of Your Touch caresses my cheek

I am reminded of how much I need you    (Acts 17:25)

And all you symbolize in this Earth Walk    (Ezekiel 37:5)

To find my way back when this sojourn is over   (Ephesians 1:10-14)

Is the truest form of love you have extended  

Thus the fierceness of the Storm   (2 Samuel 5:23-25)

Reminds me of the frailty of Life

And where I need to focus my attention

For this is not my home    (John 14: 1-4)

But there amidst the clouds and thunder

Hides the Mighty One I need to return to

When all is said and done

Oh Mamogosnan/Yeshua, may I always find you   (1 Thessalonians 3:13-17)

Hidden in every walk of Life

I have been given

Nin se Neaseno…….
