Refresh Us, God, A Prayer - Poem by Glen Kappy

Refresh us, God
refresh us with drenching rains
that will make our own irrigations laughable
that will make for lush vegetable growth
and heady fragrance
and shade so cool it is nearly drinkable.

Precious is the thirst
that makes us long for your cloud and shower
but before all moisture is gone
and cracks appear in our contentment
refresh us so every grain and cell
will know your sentient and revitalizing power.

    Glen this is a beautiful piece, it comes from a thirsty soul. And God is so kind to wash our thirsty souls, and human's need and tenderness comes out through prayers like this. Beautiful. (Report) Reply
