 Monday Prayer
    
  
 Jesus,
 You own 
 Your world
 You made
 It
 Only You can
 Save
 It 
  
 And us
 From ourselves
 So please
 Won’t You
 Come dwell
 Within us,
  
 Me
 So I may see
 You,
 Father,
 Holy Spirit
 As You really are
  
 Come to know you
 Better
 Watch you as you
 Scatter
 Yourself and gifts
 To us
  
 I need you
 Come walk
 Around inside
 my life
 to end the
 strife
 between us
  
 So it is not I
 But you that
 Lives in me
  
 Thank you for
 Showing me
 Your way
 So straight
 As You fling
 Open Heaven’s
 Gates.
  
 Praise You
 Lord Jesus
 Forgive me.
 In your name
 Amen

 Buildings
  
 Buildings
 Scraping the sky
 Tall 
 Virtually canyon
 Walls 
 Of concrete, steel
 Glass, stone
 I look up to feel
 Microscopic beside
 Them
  
 Cold, impersonal
 Hard
 Where is the soul
 Not within a shard
 Of them
 We have lost our 
 Way
 Giving sway
 To concrete
  
 Looking into the sky
 I cannot help but
 Realize
 This world, culture
 Has denied
 The one who made
 Us
 Loves us, cares for
 Us 
  
 A holy, magnificent
 God 
 So we would not 
 be lost
 Daily, over our heads
 He pleads, begs
 Pursues
 Me, I, you & you
 & you
  
 
 But our hearts
 Lay hardened
 Rebuffing, 
 Rejecting
 The One who
 Loves the most
 Father, Son &
 Holy Ghost
  
 Our souls lay hard, buried
 Within, beneath the concrete
  
   

Different!

angeldance

Different

(Choice)

 

Each has that need

Babies come into

The world with it

For Love

 

So we try to fit

In

Another smile to win

From

Someone else

 

True we were made

To be together

Be each other’s sister

Or brother

No one wants to stand

Alone

 

But unaware

We follow sometimes

The wrong direction

Follow behind that

Very long, wrong line

 

Yet a voice

From deep within

Speaks, calls, to follow

Another

To follow Him

 

Christ will not lead

You astray

He leads toward

Life, the light

Never the wrong way

 

So stand out

Be different

Follow the right voice

You cannot avoid it

For simply in not choosing

You have made your choice
