Slave to Christ – A Prayer

Slave to Christ

Slave to Christ

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”
