Prayer

Contemplation

They will soar high on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31; NLT).

“The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven”
(John 6:33; NLT).

He lifts the poor from the dust (Psalm 113:7: NLT).

The LORD lifts up those who are weighed down (Psalm 146:8; NLT).


Sometimes,
In contemplation, Lord,
My soul soars up
To meet you in the air.

At other times,
My soul can’t rise at all, Lord,
For I’m burdened
By anxiety and care.

Then you come down
To meet me in the dust, Lord,
Lifting me up with gentle hands,
To hear my prayer.
