A Sojourner's Prayer - Poem by Elmer Romulo Valdez
Almighty Father in Heaven:
My journey into this world is arduous,
I've already walked thousands of miles,
The path is crowded and heat is stifling,
There is wretchedness on the waysides.
I have met countless adversities,
And I have tasted bitter defeats,
I'm really having a hard time, Lord,
But with You, nothing is impossible.
Gratefully, Your infinite Power,
Is the only source of my Hope...
Hope to rise up, everytime I stumble,
Hope to start again, everytime I fail,
Hope to move on, everytime I'm afraid,
Hope to be upright, everytime I'm weak.
Lord, I fervently pray:
To be firm in following Your Way,
To always turn my heart toward You,
To seek freedom, holiness, and joy,
By hearing Your Word,
Obeying Your Command,
And walking in Your Light.
In the most powerful Name of Your Son,
