Dear Father, Hear my Prayer

Inspired by these lines: “Father, I stretch my hands to thee. No other help I know.” from the hymn of Charles Wesley: "Father, I Stretch My Hands to Thee"  My Father, to whom everything I owe - I come to you today with gratitude for past gifts and those gifts you still bestow. I need you so; Dear Father, hear my prayer. I look up to the Heavens and I pray for healing of my body and my soul. Please grant me strength to get through every day. I need you so; Dear Father, hear my prayer. There is no one who knows so well my pain as your Dear Son who suffered for us all. Your grace I seek ever and again. I need you so; Dear Father, hear my prayer. With faith, hope and humility I speak. Although I’m undeserving, my Dear LORD, please fill my soul. Your sweet relief I seek. I need you so; Dear Father, hear my prayer. Aug 9, 2020 for the "In Honor Of Charles Wesley" Poetry Contest Sponsor: Kim Rodrigues

What a beautiful and meaningful prayer/poem, Andrea. By-the-way, did you know that when we refer to our Father God, we use all capitals (LORD) and when we refer to Jesus we do not (Lord)? Most people don't realize this but if you'll refer to your Bible I believe you'll see the difference. Anyway, love the poem...Faved. :D
