A simple prayer

To God above, I have to find a way,
I drop to my knees and graciously pray.
I know what I mean is not always what I say,
But I pray for your presence to see me through today.

God raise me up I have been down so long,
I can’t be sure but felt like you were gone.
I need some help can you grant me this?
To feel peace again and swim in your bliss.

I’m not much for prayer, yet I do believe.
I need to feel your presence and not for you to leave.
I think about love and want to feel it still,
Just say the words, you know of my will.

I’m not looking for an answer I seek the truth.
I slip to a simpler time , days of my youth.
I want to feel your presence inside of my heart,
The world outside keeps ripping all of this apart.

People tell me to believe and you are always there.
Open up my heart and help me with all I care.
I’ve been waiting for a while, it seems no one is home.
It is hard to feel faith when you stand alone.

I hope that you can hear me I really want to know,
I want to make my peace and have love just grow.
I look up to the heavens and want to see a sign,
Put these demons to rest and learn to feel fine.

God I want to walk with you and ask please,
I want to feel whole so I drop to me knees.
I’m hoping you can be there to rise me up.
To drink once again from eternity’s cup.
