My Quiet Place To Pray


The church is quiet, dim and serene
Alone with the Lord I pray silently
Flickering candles cast shadows drifting
A tear falls down my face unchecked
I bow my head in my deep sorrow
O, Lord help me find the strength to live
Carry me from this pit of dark doom
I so want to shine again
The angel of death came for me
He called my name and I was not ready

The church quiet, dim and serene I pray so silently My tears fall while shadows flicker Thoughts, mind in agony O, Lord show me the way to you Show me life heavenly Guardian angel beside me Lord, I am now ready Written for the contest, My Quiet Place Sponsored by Sara Kendrick

    Wow, what a collection of thoughts you have here my friend! I really enjoyed your talented words you have shown in this write! I noticed slight changes from your original train of thought above from your finished write! But I think this change was very effective and showed just what you wanted in my opinion! What a fabulous piece Constance, Great Work!!

    Sara; This is beautiful, sometimes I too go to the church when there is no one there and pray. Good luck in the contest. lucilla
