A Poet's Prayer

Guide me Lord,
that your light may shine,
bring forth to others
your words not mine

Where troubles have spoiled,
erased many a smile
your truths and wisdom
will make it all worthwhile

To paint upon a face
when someone is down
a glow of happiness
and take away a frown

If I may lift up a soul,
imparting your word to bring
hope, joy and peace
then my heart will sing.
