“Cupped in Love Pouring, Love Roaring, Love Sown” a prayer poem from LWillows

Love, Love; heart hear through rain’s pouring
Strike, light; come into call’s roaring
Softly but surely, now in this vast
Find the child’s wanting and fill him to last.

Oh, be the One that will Father his heart.
Sweeten and comfort, give him a start.
How sweet the blessing when life opens to
That moment, the pouring of the thunder of You.

Pray, Love, be stilled by a wonder so new.
Filled by a God of Creation’s imbue.
Oh, sweet- yet there is so much to be known
Cupped in Love pouring, Love roaring, Love sown.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:26 & 27).

“Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God, out of the fish’s belly, And said, ‘I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and He heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou hearest my voice” (Jonah 2:1-2).

Holy Father
Giving Thanks causes our hearts to look back…
For You have known us each in this year past.
You have blessed us with your protection and your mercy.
You have spared us from the wrath of greater evils.
And shed your Light upon all that stood in harm’s way.
Father, there is no Love stronger than yours.
And nothing in this world lasts but your Promise.
Give us hearts that are turned to You in the coming year.
Grant that we are merciful to others, as You have been to us.
Help us to love as we have been Loved.
And increase our Faith, because Father -you have been so Faithful to us.
We are grateful, Dear Lord for your Blessings and the fullness of our Portion.
Amen
