Bathed with light

 

Bathed with light,
I wait in prayer –

You are with me;
You are there.

Wrapped in darkness,
All is clear –

You are with me;
You are near.

Cleansed by fire; 
Free from fear –

You are with me;
You are here.

Healed by love;
Absolved of sin –

One with you, Lord,
Deep within.

Water into wine

Hello everyone. The work of a poet is never done! I’ve just made some revisions in today’s prayer, and thought some of you might be interested to see the difference changing a word or two can make:

 

Lord,
You are amazing!

You spilled
Your precious blood

So all my sins
Can be transformed,

And turned, instead, 
To love.

Lord,
You are amazing!

I’m yours,
And you are mine.

Now all my sins 
Have turned to love-

Like water 
Into wine.
