One Shot Wednesday – Week 39

One Shot Wednesday – Time again to read and write.  Let the fun begin!

Here’s my one shot:

Cry of the Heart

Lord, do others speak to You in whole sentences?
My prayer is like me in my raw and bewildered state,
Mind and feelings at war within me,
Straining to understand, to comprehend myself,
And wondering what You desire,
Still in a quandary to know what to pray;
Indeed, how to pray.

All I know is that You, O Lord, are.
Though I seem alone,
You are with me,
Your Holy Name, my byword.
My prayer is Your Name,
Now echoing in the Father’s ear.
I do not call it back.

My cry, my prayer,
Shall resound through eternity,
And on its strains
I hold fast.
I wait, I rest, and I adore.
Let me sleep the peace of angels,
Safe in Your sure embrace.
