Prayer for the Soul
Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
un-uttered or expressed.
The emotion of a hidden fire,
burning beneath the chest.
Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
the falling of a tear.
The upward glancing of an eye,
when only God is near.
Prayer is the soul’s awaited ease,
the comfort of a home.
A humble gesture from our knees,
stronger than rock or bone.
Prayer is the wisdom we receive,
from His gentle voice.
Its the truth of that which we believe,
its the power of a choice.
