A Prayer of the Heart (An Original Poem)

Lord ~
make a way
where there is no way.
I ask this, Lord,
I ask today ~
though I fumble
to find the words
to pray,
I ask you, Jesus,
make a way.

Lord ~
do something new
in all that's old. 
I ask you, Lord,
with words so bold ~
though it's hard
to imagine
just what you will do,
I ask you, Jesus,
do something new.

give me a song
to warm your heart.
I ask you, Lord,
for a brand new part ~
a tune's not come
in ever so long.
I ask you, Jesus,
give me a song.

(~EMP, 9/13)
