A Simple Prayer



A Simple Prayer

Synapses firing
Scintillating gray matter
Behind these aging wide eyes
Awakening in innocent naïve wonder

Lead me, oh Lion of Judah
In sack cloth, ashes, and tears I pray
The love of me is growing cold
Like a sheep, I am helplessly going astray

Heal me in the depths of me
Defeat my stubborn arrogance and pride
Where, in my vulnerable broken humanness
I do in error, reside

Strengthen me
To know, far beyond strife
And to drink deeply, together with my friends
Of the precious miracle, of the Water of Life
