A Prayer For Guidance


Lord! Show me the way and I can walk on it
Sting of thorny bushes will not swear me
Lonely silence will not scare me
Send me a guiding light and I will follow it
Let the darkness dissolve in me like night dissolves under the sun
Let me float among clouds to seek thy rainbow
For I know not to pick the color of life
With my heart’s desire lost in blue sky
Lord! I wait for your whisper to take over my cries.

    We need guidance from above to take each single step... I am conscious of my inadequacy and helplessness... Unless that Power is by our side, our steps can falter... A sweet and sincere prayer! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
