Our lives reflect a prayer
Filled with the Holy Spirit
Consecrated to You, O Lord
Reaching out to fill others vessels
With a love originating
Only from Your Essence

Glowing as a lamp
During sacred vigil
Each moment, holding You
In our hearts
No foreign thought intruding
Set only on doing Your will
Our claim to good works
Not owned by us
But attributed to the Holy Spirit
Residing within
Bound to us by Your love
Cementing us to each other
The Body of Christ

Heart with heart
Hand in hand
Being of one mind
That of Christ
Lives sanctified by Your grace
No longer sinful in Your eyes
When our lives have been changed
Choosing to honor your Law
After being baptized
Into Jesus’ death and resurrection

After we trumpet Your Gospel
To the entire world
We will remain on the Last Day
Standing firmly before You
Those still embracing sin
Having been destroyed
By the brightness of Your Coming

Sin having been swept away
We stand hand in hand
With one we converted to Your Ways
Our prayer answered
Our life’s work fulfilled

    I agree with Barb, very outstanding. Here is a little challenge for you, my grandson said this phrase; Ramdom Faces, ask if could do anything with it? Do you think you can?

      Thank’s so much for the wonderful comment on my poem.
      As far as the Ramdom Faces title, things are already popping into my head to work that into a poem! Give me a few days.
