A Sinner's Prayer

A Sinner’s Prayer

On bended knees
Father, all muse deserts the tongue.
On bended knees
trying to find words to please
but the heart is still very young.
It seems that words just come out wrong
on bended knees.

To form my hands
with fingers pointing toward heaven…
To form my hands
and know Your vastness over lands…
To know Your passion can leaven
and know Your healing. Love’s heaven
to form my hands.

A sinner’s prayer
to ask for Blessings…heal others.
A sinner’s prayer…
From the heart comes the face I wear
with love for all my brothers,
forgive my sins against others…
A sinner’s prayer.

    when we were little we said our prayers at night before getting into bed, at dinner table, for breakfast. now it's more in my heart as you say. Or when I see homeless , or a car on side of road. GREAT JOB ;}

    Nicely done Janet. Sometimes it's hard to know what to say, especially when we know we have done wrong. Great job. God Bless, JB
