**- My Prayer - Poem by Mari Martin

In a world of quiet prayers,
where Creator's peace surrounds me
and the only sound is my heart
softly beating,
I lay my head to the earth
to offer my humble thank you
for the blessings in my life.

My life is but a speck of sand
in the immense beauty
of His ocean of Love.
Yet, even as the smallest grain,
He shows me every day
that without me
His ocean would be incomplete.

My every breath, every thought,
is His creation.
I am humbled before the wonder
of His mercy,
to be blessed with my life
and the endless Love
bestowed upon me.

Even in times of sorrow
does Creator's breath give me hope.
Although, I am blinded by my own need,
and walk in my self made darkness,
the blessed light of Creator
illuminates my path
to guide my way.

In the quietness of my prayers,
do I humbly ask
to always be your child,
to always be reminded
by your gentle, loving guidance
that all in life has purpose,
that you have given me your gift of life.

Thank you for my life
All praise and adoration I give to you,
for, without your ocean of Love,
I would be but a grain of sand
in a desert of darkness
where my soul would wander
with no purpose or substance.

Blessed is your name
upon my lips,
Creator of all that is,
all that has been or will be,
giver of mercy to this humble one
who offers my loving heart,
into your hands.

    The magnificance of solitude! ! If only those who don't believe could feel the 'Contact'....if only! !
    but they need proof, 'solid' proof, so they don't believe....a 'wicked generation'.

    A beautiful poem of love and is not hard to worship when this Love is Present and the humility it brings only makes it more Glorious! !

    Thankyou Mari.
