“ A Prayer ”
Satan leans close and whispers…
“If you weren’t good enough before,
Why would you be good enough now?”
He knows me well…
He’s been in my life a long time
But that was before I died
And was born again…
I’m like a baby just learning how to crawl
I can’t always catch myself before the fall
But now there is someone new to lend me a hand
And pick me up and give me the strength to stand
Worthy to be loved, me?
When everyone I’ve ever loved has turned and left me?
Who else but God will love me unconditionally?
Does this mean I’ll always be lonely?
Does this mean love will come to stay?
No matter what I do or say?
Dear Lord, I fall to my knees
If not love, Lord please give me peace
Help me Lord, not to want what is not in your will
Please Lord, calm my thoughts and make my spirit still
For it is in the stillness that I feel you the most
It is in the stillness that I feel you close
Flee from me Satan!
My heart has no room for you
For I am no longer the girl you once knew
I belong to Jesus!
