“Mercy Grants from Moments Felled” sacred prose from LWillows

ff5381ed9389cad072e4cb800f9fe2

Lifting prayer beyond my sight
Into Heaven’s holy might.
Here I send from inside heart’s pew,
This the vow, my trust in You.

Mercy grants from moments felled,
Surrendered, lost; the storms left quelled.
Wind whispers rendered- plead for me,
left all at the foot of thy Holy Tree.

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
-Romans 8:26

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
-Psalm 9:10

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

394a90fa83e5eda4ae755ba959bda5af
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).
