A Moment of Prayer

written 10 January 2004 by Renae’ Harrison

So much time has passed since we last spoke

Many days I haven’t prayed

In this moment I fall to my knees, fold my hands, and slowly bow my head.

I ask that you listen diligently, and with a gentle tone

Forgive me first of all my sins

For my soul is almost gone.

My heart is hurting drastically

This life has gotten much too hard

I’m lost, confused, traumatized,

and very emotionally scarred.

Laughter sometimes hides my anger

Not many smiles appear on this face

At this moment I’m not of life

Grief and emptiness smother my grace.

Loneliness has become my companion

I have no friends who really care

I’m too forgiving of those who do me wrong

When I’m in need, no one is ever there.

I’m faced with adversity everyday

Prone to envy and slanderous talk

Undeniable aggressiveness indulges me well

Shrewdness in my walk.

Ive made choices that worked against me

My experiences I’ve learned at hand

That I’m just as ignorant as my neighbor

And sometimes I don’t understand.

If I could turn back the hands of time

I’d do things much differently

But then I realized that whatever happens in my life

is truly meant to be

I am only human, a mere reflection of yourself

but my faith is nearly through

How much pain do I have to endure

before I find my way back to you?
