Words Runaway (Prayer)

Our mouths open spilling
Word that offer no healing
A symptom of hurt
Struggling to know our worth
Perhaps they’re an insight
Into our hearts, get right
You can’t stay this way
Lord hear as we pray
We’re the lost one You speak of
The one’s who speak with no love
No fruit from our lips
The hand of death we grip
Looking out to others
Who know the Lord as their lover
I want that too, agape’
Love that’s not my sloppy
Second hand gift
So to You my eyes will I lift
Begging, reach out Your hand
Death obey His command
Release us from your treacherous hold
So the life of our mouths will unfold
Open heart, filter our mind
Remove the loose filth and grime
It can’t take hold of us…me
Not our words, Lord hear my plea
I’m coming to You
I declare it’s You our heart will ensue
But it’s hurt and heavy
We’re not strong enough to carry
This load alone
Father speak from Your throne
Bridle our tongue, filter our words
Teach us the grace You give though we don’t deserve
Our mouths runaway
With our thoughts they sway
A double-minded contentious desire
Let us die to our flesh, Lord take us higher.

You need to know me? I am an old youth. Late to grow. Yet grateful of the time given by the Lord. Under His watchful eye, I am redirected, chastened, and chided. My heart is fragile, broken, and a work in progress. The Lord delicately puts me together as if mending glass. My pieces are not visibly shown. Hurt words leave my mouth, the sharp edges of my broken glass; though my heart speaks a different beat. A common factor in our time. My ways have sent me astray from the Lord’s path. I am no different than you. The Lord uses His timetable, methods, and avenues to lead us back to Him…if we will listen. Heavenly Father, Open my ears to hear Your gentle voice. Soften my heart so that I will heed Your words. Guide my feet so that I may walk in line with Your will. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen! PhotoCredit: https://goo.gl/images/ShgvmP
