“Praise comes to live in the Breaths of our Hearts”, a worship poem by LWillows

ExaltIsaiahBeloved
Isaiah 25.1
O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

Praise Comes to Live in the Breaths of our Hearts

In praise all bows before Your Name
Each leaf on the branch bends green to refrain
Glory to Him, the all of our till
Father and root of each one in His will.

Long and all lasting the winding He keeps
Each Holy vine wrapped around His dear reach.
Forest earth paradise, mortal review
Lasting within The Beloved’s pass-through.

Whispering breezes come home to float peace
Known in Love’s rest, in the garden’s increase.
Here in the lush of God’s paradise apart,
Praise comes to live in the breaths of our hearts.

“Love’s Grace Extolled” a worship poem from LWillows

LovesGraceBeloved
Love’s Grace Extolled

Love finds me falling into its grace deep,
a winsome warm wave of sweet callings keep.
Oh follow this near, I could not part far,
from this Heart of Love’s reap,
not by distance nor star.

Find me in the shining of far light above.
It hovers, yet reaches to come near to love.
Like the twilight that arises as sister to the moon,
Love comes near to touch; I fall into a swoon.

Love finds me falling through celestial scroll
tendered with prayers that invoke Gods’ extol.
Turning my Face to the beauty of Thee.
I am washed, filled within, with the soul of devotee.

“Upon Prayer’s Bended Knee”, a worship poem by LWillows

PrayersBend2Beloved

Silent O the morning
in light’s beautified slant
Each tree branch held bended
felled wanting
cupped sweet.
Leaves groomed as green lace
display sky and God’s breeze;
whispering prayers scent
Love’s aroma advent.

Surely for God,
only His, this for all.
Life swept aside
in the grandeur of the hours.
Silent hearts heightened
Holy reaching, towers to us
in the slant of light’s glimmer,
we are hallowed, we are tilled
at Glory’s day’s break, we are tended,
we are stilled.

Lend Holy song’s blush
In the grace of shade tree
Love reaches, falls softly
Upon prayer’s bended knee.

Psalm 17:6
I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray.

Psalm 116
I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. 2 Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe!

“Love’s Tender Reign” prayer prose from LWillows

FleurGod_n
I stand upon such sacred ground
not born of this world, yet here in Heart’s mound.

Tender to touch, still fragile as dust,
I pray Love to be found in all Life’s abound.

Willing to open with the Graced gentle flow,
I cast all lost tears and lay rest as I go.

Swept thus into, the whole of Loves’ Reign;
my soul, I pray, is freed in God’s gain.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

Intercession for Tomorrow’s Resolve

Father, I pray that you anoint all the routes that need and call for your blessing,
The many that cross between and within Your Kingdom
For all of the voices and prayers that call out to you for intercession,
May we be given sight by The Power of Your Spirit
in our hearts that cry out to You.
Rain upon us with Love.
Until we are washed of the flesh’s clinging dew.
soak the ground, flood atone
Birth us new in the merciful sight of You.

Father, I pray that you anoint all the lives that need and call for your blessing,
The many that cross between and within your Kingdom
For all of the those that call out to you for intercession,
May they find you by The Power of Your Spirit
Hear the whispers and cries of their calls.
Rain upon them with Grace
Fill their hearts to the brim with sweet overflow
Soak in with joy where the ears may hear,
Bring them all home to the Heart of Love’s glow.

Father, I pray that you anoint all the nations that need and call for your blessing,
The many that cross between and within Your Kingdom
For all of the leaders and peoples that call out to you for intercession,
May they be lifted into your Great Cloud of Witnesses for Protection and Wisdom.
May they be given hearts of Courage by The Power of Your Spirit.
Rain upon them with Your Will, Father.
Rain upon them with Your Mercy, Father.
Rain upon them with Your Eternal Good
And soak the ground with Your Spirit
That all that is not of Your Own uproots and dissolves.
That Your Kingdom, Your Peace and all Tomorrow’s resolve.

In Jesus Name.
Amen
