Simply Prayer

SimplyPrayer

I use it when the dentist looms over me with Novocain.

I use it when the airplane hits turbulence and I’m convinced we’re going to crash.

I use it when the lights go off and I’m home alone and admit to being scared.

It’s a simple child’s prayer and I use it often. It’s not brilliant or emotional. Yet, when times are tough- it gets me through.

I am the place where God shines through.
For He and I are One not two.
I may not fear, nor fret, nor plan,
He wants me where and as I am.
If I would be relaxed and free;
He'll carry out his plans through me.


I’m amazed that with all I forget these days, I remember this prayer. A prayer so simple that a child learns it and it stays in the heart forever.

Child Inside Me

I don't wanna.
I don't wanna get out of bed,
take a shower,
make breakfast.
I don't wanna iron my shirt,
drive to work,
sit in that blasted cubby all day.

You understand,
I do wish I'd wanna.
With Your help, I will
make the most of my day.
I won't disappoint me,
my children,
my boss,
or more importantly,
You.

"DO YOU HAVE A CHILDHOOD PRAYER YOU REMEMBER?"

The archangel loved heights. Standing on the summit of the tower that crowned his church, wings upspread, sword uplifted, the devil crawling beneath, and the cock, symbol of eternal vigilance, perched on his mailed foot, Saint Michael held a place of his own in heaven and on earth... end quote
