On the Wings of Prayer

 All I need is silence,
A heart quiescent and still,
Submitting to Your Spirit,
I gladly yield my will.
Under His direction,
Light and truth are shed,
I gain understanding,
As Your Sacred Word is read.
He sets aflame my senses,
He vivifies my soul,
He breathes new life into me,
My joyous spirit soars.
Ascending to Mount Zion,
I rise on eagle’s wings,
Worshipping the Father,

And exalting You my King.

Send Your Spirit on me Lord,
As soft as morning dew,
As gentle as a summer rain,
Refresh, revive, renew.

When my human spirit ,
Is too weak He’ll pray and plead, 
With moans and groans too deep for words,
He’ll sigh and intercede.

Your Holy Spirit guarantees,
To grant the grace I need,
To stay in fellowship with You,
As I live out the Creed.

There is no greater gift than this,
That God abides in me,
And through Your Holy Spirit 
Loves me ineffably.

A CONDUIT OF GRACE (The Sacrament of Matrimony)

(Sacramental Marriage)

Too often it’s been found that love,
No matter how sublime,
Cools the heat of ardor,
When ill winds bear testing times.

Neither pledge nor promise,
Nor plighting troth suffice,
To love, honor and cherish,
Without self sacrifice.

Love comes with no guarantees,
That present bliss won’t pale,
As the cross grows heavier,
Marriage vows can flail.

If God is not a witness to,
The oaths the two will swear,
Wedding vows are easily,
Renounced should either err.

The dreary drag of custom,
Can douse the keenest blaze,
Hence this wondrous Sacrament,
Is Christ’s conduit of grace.

Myra D’Souza – 11th September 2014
