A Black Man's Prayer

Dear Lord:

Could you find the time to awaken me from the Grave of My Mind and treat me like Lazarus?

Tell Me to Rise and Come Forth for I have been deceased for quite sometime…

Remove the shackles of my mind and bind them to Your Will…

Treat Me Like Lazarus Lord…

Show me how to take off those tapes of disappointment and how to Stand Like A Man…

Let me hear the call that takes my foot out of the grave that others have set before me, by their lack of faith in me, by their treatment of me…

Treat Me Like Lazarus Lord…

I have been asleep too long and My Family Needs Me to Rise Again, like the SUN… Like YOUR HOLY SON…

      If only I could send this out to those who need it without their taking an offense. I can only pray, one day... GBY
