Save The Lost (Poetic Prayer)


To the entrance of an unknown and strange world, (Sin)
Tried to survive with the strength of self and might, (lust of the flesh)
Only to see rejection and abduction of pain flowing from sight, (fallen from grace)
Not with the eyes of men do you see humanity; (a heart undefined)
But with an eye of compassion you laid to them from divinity. (A thought so divine)
Tear drops from the tunnels of your love you called. (Called to grace)
With our itching ears bending to the echoes of the fallen, (compassion to the lost and fallen)
Couldn’t hear the call of our Father in eternity, though in time (heart of stone)
You bridged the barrier to the distance with love and called us by faith. (Saved by grace)
You have named all and own all. (Adoption to son-ship)
Through Your tender love and care laid with mercy, (eternal forgiveness)
Bring forth unto your bosom the lost marking them in your name. (Eternal inheritance)
Though transgressed; no more affliction; Lord Save the Lost! ! !

    The question is can all the lost be saved, come forth repent and moving forward trying to behave.
    A moral dilemma in what some us do for a living.
    Does it mean we are forsaken?
    Lost children to be forever abandoned.
    Is there any hope in changing that which becomes evil?
    A seed planted, watered, sheltered, now it grows.
    But there is twist in it, it not as god wants, but as we want.
    We are the nature of human beings, no matter the religion in which we believe.
    Morality is not some writing in a book, it is what is in your heart.
    Doing what's right from the start. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
