6.4.23: A dream of God

Zamora – Museo Baltasar Lobo, Wikimedia.

This prayer came to me yesterday, when I had to get up early for a hospital appointment. It was difficult to write, but finally came together during the afternoon, as I slept and woke repeatedly:

To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul (Psalm 25:1; ESV). 

Prayer is like a dream of God –
Absorbed by love which never ends,

By truth and light; by strength and fire;
By peace, to which my soul ascends.

Prayer is like a dream of God –
At one, in love which never dims,

And so, with childlike trust, I praise
The Lamb, who takes away my sins.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Here is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29; CSB).


We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

He loves us with unfailing love; the LORD’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NLT).

The Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength (Isaiah 26:4; KJV).

The Lord your God is a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24; NIV).

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).

Anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it (Luke 18:17; NIV). 

I praise the Lord (Psalm 56:10; NLT).

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:3; NLT).
