A song of humility

O lord please give me a clear mind for the enemy has devised privily against me.
Why does my adversary so with haste to adjourn my life.
What plans do you have for my life, Lord?
Hardship after hardship I've encountered.
Have you omitted my soul, o Lord?
Have you forgotten this flesh?
I know you haven’t, but the toil is too difficult to prolong.
O lord, lessen on my burden for my heart is still young and naive.
For I’m still way to ignorant of your truths.
Lord I’m humble but I'm afraid that I’ll crumble like a two dollar suitcase.
Teach me how to attain the things of your manner.
Speak to my heart o lord for I'm listening attentively.
Lord, I’m blind and I'm straying away from your amazing light.
Lead me to your fountain of life and to your garden of milk and honey, for I await the journey.
Lord you said in your words that a city built on top of a hill cannot be hidden, I bid you to build me like in such a manner as of that city.
Lord let me be lit and emitted so I can be shown brightly far off.
Touch the crown of my head with you finger tips.
Raise me like I was your begotten.
I ask for a double anointing and eloquence.
Keep me humbly at your footstool.
Eradicate my pride and my self-conceit.
Remove the timidness from inside of my chest.
Let my voice be as a roaring lion and my prudence as a sly fox.
Lord I surrender all to you, for you alone are worthy. Amen.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
