My Prayer. This poem is in the public domain. Smoke Light-winged Smoke! Icarian bird, Melting thy pinions in thy upward flight; Lark without song, and messenger of dawn, Circling above the hamlets as thy nest; Or else, departing dream, and shadowy form Of midnight vision, gathering up thy skirts; By night star-veiling, and by day Darkening the light and blotting out the sun; Go thou, my incense, upward from this hearth, And ask the gods to pardon this clear flame.
Henry David Thoreau Inspiration Whate'er we leave to God, God does, And blesses us; The work we choose should be our own, God leaves alone. If with light head erect I sing, Though all the Muses lend their force, From my poor love of anything, The verse is weak and shallow as its source. But if with bended neck I grope Listening behind me for my wit, With faith superior to hope, More anxious to keep back than forward it; Making my soul accomplice there Unto the flame my heart hath lit, Then will the verse forever wear— Time cannot bend the line which God hath writ.
O Lord, Hear My Prayer | finingfuncturta.tk
Always the general show of things Floats in review before my mind, And such true love and reverence brings, That sometimes I forget that I am blind. But now there comes unsought, unseen, Some clear divine electuary, And I, who had but sensual been, Grow sensible, and as God is, am wary. I hearing get, who had but ears, And sight, who had but eyes before, I moments live, who lived but years, And truth discern, who knew but learning's lore.
I hear beyond the range of sound, I see beyond the range of sight, New earths and skies and seas around, And in my day the sun doth pale his light. A clear and ancient harmony Pierces my soul through all its din, As through its utmost melody— Farther behind than they, farther within.
More swift its bolt than lightning is, Its voice than thunder is more loud, It doth expand my privacies To all, and leave me single in the crowd. It speaks with such authority, With so serene and lofty tone, That idle Time runs gadding by, And leaves me with Eternity alone. By making us wait God is teaching us to trust that he will eventually do what he promised he would. Not only is he trying to teach us to trust him he is trying to teach us to learn patiently. To wait is simply to stay in place in expectation of something.
We do it all the time on the phone with customer service, in lines, and at red lights. We fix the waiting problem by speeding things up.
The problem is when we do things faster we get less quality. They require patience. They require steadfastness. They require waiting without complaint. If we want to receive what we have asked from the Lord we have to be patient.
God is never going to rush anything that is meant to be good because His work is of quality and what He does will last. You would want him or her to take their time. You would keep coming back for fitting after fitting until they got the job done just the way you like it if not better.
When God is preparing our blessing he is doing the same thing. He takes what we ask and tailors it just for us to make sure that we get exactly what we wanted if not better than what we originally asked for.
God always answers prayers even when the answer is no. What about those times when he simply says nothing at all and my prayer goes unanswered? We think God will bless us in a mysterious and miraculous way when really it could be much easier if we just take the time to be present. Ok, but what if it takes a really long time for him to respond?
He wants us to practice our faith by trusting in him to provide what it is that we have asked for.
Jana Riess: Learning to pray with the prayer wheel
Not only that he wants us to be patient. God wants us not to complain in our waiting but to be steadfast. God wants to tailor what he has for us to meet our needs and much more but we have to be patient. Thanks for reading. Sign in. Get started. Isaac Breese Follow.
