A Simple Prayer

A simple prayer


You brought me

from my mother’s womb

to serve my brothers

and my sisters.

At times, I ignore

Your message

and follow

my own path.

All this time,

You are the rock

of my refuge,

but I do not recognize You

in the shadows.

For many years,

I lived outside

of your protective fortress.

You brought me

into the light,

allowing me

to again become

a child of Your light.

I am no longer trying to hide from You.


As You brought the Israelites

From Egypt,

from the horrid slavery

of the Pharaoh,

through the Holy Spirit,

you free me

from the spiritual slavery

of modern society.

I fill my lips

with your praise,

with your glory

for the remainder

of my days.
