Encountering God - Poem by Mihaela Pirjol

In weakness and in fear,
In doubt and trembling
Like a lost child
With an heavy heart,
In humility,
In hope for my salvation
I had come to Thee...
I had come to encounter thee,
God Almighty!
Behind thy church's stone,
On my knees I fell
Amongst the trees in forest deep,
My wounded soul to thee I wept.
Thou understood my prayer,
Thou understood my woe
And in thy Grace Divine,
Thou received this soul of mine;
Upon my heart,
Thy mystic presence...Light!
Lost soul, by guiding light I found.
With Everlasting Love Divine,
My mortal human-weakness thou replaced;
And with such radiance my heart fulfilled,
Beyond my knowing reaches
Mesmerized by a miracle I felt,
Overflowing sacredly upon the World
With abundance in sharing,
Spreading Divine on paths by evil touched.
And I rose and walked
With a confidence I did not have,
In smile my joyful spirit, while humiliated,
Devoted loving, while despised I have been;
Wide wings of hope I felt
Soaring high and free
Just like a dove;
Faithfully...I believed!
And all my questions,
In thy sacred book
Thou answered them God!
I, then…
Loved with a Love
Beyond reason or judgement,
Completely, selflessly,
To the point of vanishing…
Till thy Brightness,
Brought me closer to Thee…
God Almighty!

    This is so intense and cumulative it has to be read more than once. I sense a two-fold quality First, there is the mystic experience itself - the searching for God, preparing oneself to receive his visitation, expressing gratitude. All of these things happen in the present tense of the poem. Second, the poem gives an over view practice of belief and practice.
    But this is a private experience. I noticed it happened OUTSIDE IN BACK OF THE CHURCH: it's still sacred ground but not part of a service with other worshipers. YOU prayed to God to manifest himself and he complied in appearing to you alone. This was a mystical experience, one-on-one in the divine presence, a unique blessing.No doubt the consequence of the passionate commitment of your prayer.

    Mihaela Pirjol Writes A Personal Lord's Prayer

    this is a Lord's Prayer
    written in heartfelt beauty
    in frail pale humanity
    falling upon blood knees
    scar pain affliction joy
    sorrow soaring belief
    suppressed human spirit
    which though compressed
    crushed must faith rise
    upon salvation wings prayer

    to transcend human frailty
    gullibility weakness apathy
    tormenting doubts then enflamed
    find rebirth regeneration
    in heaven raised flight
    vanishing into an eternity
    radiating creation enlightened
    in encompassing chrysalis rapture

    This is a Lord's Prayer written in the beauty of frail humanity, falling upon the knees of affliction joy sorrow soaring belief, in the human spirit which though suppressed crushed must rise upon the wings of prayer, transcend human frailty weakness apathy doubts then enflamed find regeneration in heaven raised flight, vanishing into an eternity radiating creation enlightened in encompassing rapture.
