Prayer for peace

 

lord and ladyWell, I will admit this is inspired…

My friend sings a song about ‘o Lord, give me strength’, and she is not religious!!   It is catchy to me, and makes me wonder if even those of us who claim not to be religious have a little bit of hope from spiritual help inside them.

These are big questions.  I would love to hear comments, but I won’t hold my breath!

(BTW: meant to be taken with a grain of salt)

So over a glass of red, I write:

Striving for Peace, Co-operation and the Will to See it Through

Give me strength, my Lady,

My lady, give me strength,

When I feel your presence,

I will find ways to hold on through the years,

Outside: almost everything,

Our world, environment,

Earth, water, and sky,

Fire…

Our thoughts reaching far beyond,

Intricate complexities,

Give me strength, my Lord,

Oh Lord, give me strength,

When I feel your presence,

I will find ways to hold on through the years,

Outside: boundless and infinite,

Creatures small, and massive,

Trees climbing so high,

Higher:

Skyscrapers, reach far beyond

Intricate architecture,

Give me strength, my Lady,

My lady, give me strength,

Inside, what we are born with,

Our form is learned and taught,

Pure blood, bones and brains,

Flesh,

Each humble shape, begins meek

Elegant metamorphosis,

Give me strength, my Lord,

Oh Lord, give me strength,

Inside, we are given strength

Each of us has talents,

Sights, sounds, and bodies,

Thoughts,

Driving movements start so meek,

Elegant solution
