Searching For New Praise

Written by: John Posey

A Prayer Of Jacob This, Lord Jesus is my goal --- to discover a single word of praise not spoken since that time so long ago you took my place. My Lord, I seek so hard to find that unique phrase or choice of words not spoken until they pass my lips in praise of you. I search for some unsung song that is mine alone to give. Even though the passion in my heart is known to you, still I long to sing your glory in tones unused before. My love for you looks for expression in phrases that are not worn by ages of overuse, no matter how sincere their intent. Precious Savior, it is not special favor that I seek, but only to still this anxious heart. Lord, hear me, even as I search. Entry for Catie Lindsey's contest Contest: Poems of Praise
