The Widow’s Prayer.

 

Dear Lord I pray ‘Be Still’,

Sufficient is this day.

Been here before, and will again,

You always make a way.

 

I count out every penny.

Pay the bills I can,

but sometimes, get so overwhelmed,

Forget You have a Plan.

 

Try so not to go there.

Keep my worries locked away,

but then they bubble late at night,

and steal all peace away.

 

Remind me Who is in control.

Remind me of my place,

and as I lay me down to sleep,

Fill me with Your Grace.

 

To pray for those with less than I.

To pray for those in pain.

To rest within Your Loving arms,

and Rise and Shine again.

 

Dear Lord I pray ‘Be Still’,

Sufficient is this day.

Been here before, and will again,

You always make a way.

    It is comforting to find that this chimes so exactly with my own daily thoughts and routine pre-occupations. Poems such as this qualify,not only by their intrinsic artistic merit,but also by the attitude of their responses to the Spiritual,to be included in that venerable tradition of Christian Literature known as Apologetics.
