Just A Single P R A Y E R

Isaiah 43:2

King James Version

2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

Struggling through the darkness

Trying to find my way

I fought with pain and sorrow

Felt fear dissuade my steps

Walking on the path toward joy

I was assaulted by despair

Feelings of worry and anxiety

Poured over my inspirations

So that I couldn’t even find

The way toward my heart’s destination

Reaching toward my future

With hopes of a better way

I longed for peace and harmony

A reason to share my blessings

Wisdom to praise with my soul

Assurance that I would become

Overwhelmed by the pleasure

He brought to life inside my heart

Fighting my way across the deserts

Of dry, uninhabited lands – where

My heart felt lost in the distress

And my soul’s hope was absent, adrift

In the maze of apprehension and fuss

Found on the seas of disappointment

The waves of discouragement, dishonor

Alive on the lives of those who know

The shadows of dread that haunt the dreams

Of those who don’t listen to the yearnings

From A God who only wants your light

To shine through the sadness and dread

Bring second chances to those who need

To see God in the blessings they know

The ones that help them to learn and grow

Into the lights, shining through the night,

Stirring the spirits who need His glow

To color their hearts in hues of hope!

Wrestling with the sorrows and pains

Unsure just what I might need to regain

My strength, my hope and my dreams

I sometimes don’t realize the answer

Is living inside – I just need to ask Him

Pray with my heart, even in my thoughts,

Knowing His grace is always sufficient

And His light will pierce the blackness

That has troubled my soul and left me

Without a hope – just a single P R A Y E R
