Slave to Christ (a prayer)

1

Enslave me in Your grace oh Lord Advocate

Guide me to be Your spokesperson, Your device

Set me on fire with Your love, that I may be met

With the tears of heaven when I praise You thrice

For I have seen the beautiful feet of those

Who bring the good news of Your conquest of death

And I may now take comfort in safe repose

For I’ve inhaled the Word of the Holy Breath

For I have heard Isaiah, and I discern

The promise is real, and as flesh came to be

Enslave me in Your grace, so that I may burn

With the light of the eternal truth set free

Enslave me in Your grace, in the Father’s name

Him who spoke to Abraham and to Moses

And in the Son’s and the Holy Spirit’s flame

Born of the Virgin, I am in Your embrace

I now spread my hands to Your new creation

Fully born again, made clean in Christ alone

The old has gone, behold my true elation

As in my soul it flowers the grace You’ve sown

Forgive me my weakness, let me not falter

In my affliction and anguish of the heart

Enslave me in Your grace, that it may alter

All of my soul, into a work of God’s art.

    The POEM slave to Christ seems a prayer form the depth of a heart which loves Jesus Christ in a very nearest relationship, as if fully committed.

    The lines most attracted me are:
    “FORGIVE ME MY WEAKNESS, LET ME NOT FALTER
    IN MY AFFLICTION AND ANGUISH OF THE HEART”
