My Sabbath Prayer - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

I pray unto the heavens
For peace on earth today
Not just months or years
But long everlasting waves
A toss of time and its beyond:
Or for eternity
Fields of endless sounds of joy
Love with crying yields
Pray for rain in its seasonal place
For tree with fruits, herbs and grass to stay
Sun to grow things nice and green
Under clear blue skies to seed abundant reaps
Wish to learn truth about predestined fate
The realities behind those eras now erased
How in this reality we came to this state?
To know the signs, the events we face
Take me far outside of age
Into eternal flames which blooms origin
A time before earth and its host make
Wish, if allowed, to apply my faith
Protect the meek from con man plays
Know there is a Father who watch and waits
Bow before Him and present my case
Pray I grow in wisdom true ways
Not lost and found in an unrighteous maze
Pray for misgivings us flesh do
Yeah we mess up too
Wish to view actuality to see facts clear
So, I in life can serve the throne as well
Wish all the hosts were happy with cheer
Safe from death, doubt and fear
Pray you hear these statements dear
Ignore my eye rolling dripped tear
Wishing inside to at least stand at the rear
Of the new city gate
My Sabbath Prayer
