with my eyes closed, on bended knees
Lord i lay my problems, at Your feet
my broken heart, Jesus please rebuild
and lead me to do, all of Gods will
i devoted my life to You, many years ago
while submerged in water, i took an oath
to live Christ like, and repent mistakes
and walk not by sight, be be lead by Faith
and my blessings are abundant, so i truly believe
You will provide, all that i need
but Lord - since the day, that i got baptized
i've been constantly violated and victimized
my eyelashes are still moist, from all the tears i have wept
and sometimes i feel, like i'm all by myself
trying to live in Your name, and be strong and righteous
against men of the world, who do not think like Us
so God please give me the strength, to forgive like You
as i continuously fall victim, to the evil that men do
i've been deceived by foes, who came disguised as friends
as i constantly open my heart, and let them all in
it seems like everytime i try to help, the down-trodden and meek
they've mistaken my kindness, and perceived me as weak
i've been slandered, stole from, and spat upon
and Lord it's getting so hard, for me to carry on
without thoughts of retaliation, anger and Vengeance
yet i know i must remain obediant, as Your servant and witness
that's why Lord, i come to you on bended knees
and ask you to remove, all thoughts like these
i pray you empower me, with all the strength that i have sought
help me to appreciate my gifts, and not cry over things i lost
please renew my compassion and love for my Brethren
and help me to forgive them all, seventy-times-seven
finally Lord, as i graciously forgive, i have one humble request
please pardon me for not appreciating how much i've been Blessed
Hey 'theinspiring1', welcome to Hubpages. I'm pretty new myself. I've read your three poems and they're good. Make sure you create hubs for them though, otherwise they will get lost in the forum.

If you have a prayer request or would like for someone to pray along with you than let me know. You might be saying well, why am I doing this for one reason the Bible tells us to, James 5:16Therefore, confess your sins...

I do not know if this is a proper way to address this, but I am making a plea for a call to prayer for all those affected in this most dangerous storm's path (many here on HP, our friends, i.e., Colin a.k.a. Epigramman,...

The Bible commands us to praise God. We're to praise Him in good and bad times alike. Now, I would be lying if I said it's easy to praise God when things are going wrong in our lives. It's not,...
