Prayer

rose-234483_1920

Gently I fold my hands

dropping to my knees

Weeping for losses

Not my own this time

Losses of my neighbor elsewhere​

Losses that hurt 

Losses that weaken my knees

Losses that push me to that thought;

Forgive

I say to my heavenly Father,

Help me to forgive

Help them to forgive

Help us to forgive again and again

Even when it hurts

With this simple prayer

Heal my heart again

Heal our hearts

Heal your people

Heal us all

For we cry through 

simple words of

prayer.

    1. Thank you dear. It’s a broken world and I know we are called to forgive even in times when we don’t feel like it. It hurts deep but we must for we are commanded to do so.💞
