Psalm 86 “Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer; answer me for I need your help…”

Psalm86Belovedw
Psalm 86
A prayer of David.

1 Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
2 Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
3 Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
4 Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
5 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
6 Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
7 I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.

8 No pagan god is like you, O Lord.
None can do what you do!
9 All the nations you made
will come and bow before you, Lord;
they will praise your holy name.
10 For you are great and perform wonderful deeds.
You alone are God.

11 Teach me your ways, O Lord,
that I may live according to your truth!
Grant me purity of heart,
so that I may honor you.
12 With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God.
I will give glory to your name forever,
13 for your love for me is very great.
You have rescued me from the depths of death.

14 O God, insolent people rise up against me;
a violent gang is trying to kill me.
You mean nothing to them.
15 But you, O Lord,
are a God of compassion and mercy,
slow to get angry
and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.
16 Look down and have mercy on me.
Give your strength to your servant;
save me, the son of your servant.
17 Send me a sign of your favor.
Then those who hate me will be put to shame,
for you, O Lord, help and comfort me.

“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.

“A Prayer for Anointing by Our Father”, a calling for His Holy Blessing

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

“Holy these Petals, Become”…worship poem from LWillows

I marvel at my Zinnia flower’s tone,
bright with pinks’ hues, it roams like love’s koan;
abiding in joy; seasons through two…
it welcomes each morning at one with the dew.

Is it with the gift of some lightness to bear,
that flowers like this must live free and dare?
Beckoning, dancing as a heart that must bloom
in petals, with a fragrance that spreads room to room.

Seeds flecked with gold as these petals unfold,
this Zinnia is a wonder with a purpose untold.
Treasure in living with light from above,
It is turned to the Sun for all days in His Love.

As time brings the cycle of Grace to fulfill,
The Petals open to grandeur- this God’s holy til.
Earthen seeds scatter like birds in the sky
carried to burrow in an earthen nest’s near…
born again dears, they will not again die.

Marvel the joy of the weep in of the gold Sun
in that new morning when all Will shall be done.
Holy, oh holy these petals become
when the seasons of Love are all blended to One.

2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
