“Worship in the Rains”, a prayer poem from L. Willows (Belonging to God, Courage, God’s Love Pours)

Worship in the Rains

Worship, we worship in the rains
when the skies are pouring grey,
when parts come letting bare before
the nights that long for the wake of day.

Let the hearts, all hearts be bold
when the clouds let loose and part,
when the rains come forth and summon life
and God gives Love, all life a start.

Speak into the vast untold
when the rains pray praise and lift our gaze.
When these the fields become His own alone
we worship Him, in this- we pour.
There in the midst of the haze we see
God is more, His Glory soars.

“Tomorrow Can See”, a worship poem from L.Willows (See Jesus, The Glory, God’s Calling)

Tomorrow Can See

Here in The Gift
is a newness that breaks
known as God’s Calling,
in the Dawn of His wake.

Burdens born then,
come round to the fore,
lifted like children that have
gone through the Door.

There, in all hearts
is a pouring that soars.
Altars that pray,
they worship and adore.

Tomorrow can see,
Love will be throughout time.
Given, our living,
forever, as Thine.

Lord Have Mercy; a Mother’s Prayer

Lord have mercy,
Live on past me.
Come into the hearts of my children, Lord.
Drawn them in to find you and see.

Lord have mercy,
Live on past me.
Come into the lives of my own, those dear-
Born from my start then apart, these hearts;
Oh Lord give them Your adore, this I implore.

Lord have mercy.
Live on past me.
Take them as Yours full into your grasp.
Bind this my all, these my children, I ask.
Come into their hearts with a fullness, all parts.
This, they belong, we all ask, we all grasp.
Lord, please have mercy,
From the first to the last.
