The Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
how clichéd is this?
I want to find out more about myself,
so I turn now to you.
I waited,
and waited,
and waited.

You said
Look my child, look around you,
and there you will see me.

So I did.

I saw you…
in the midst of the couple who eloped to exchange desperate vows,
at the moment a newborn takes his first breath,
in the young woman who dropped coins for the street buskers,
in the gratitude of a homeless person,
reflected in the smile of a toddler who’s just taken her first step,
in the beauty of a cherished woman,
in the determination of a soldier trying his best to protect those he loved,
in the creativity of an aspiring artist,
in the satisfaction of a writer’s first completed draft,
in the friends I’ve made while overseas,
in the missionaries and families who befriended a broken girl,
when I received my first blessing,
in my boyfriend when he prayed with me,
in the people you’ve sent, and…… also,
in the last smile my grandfather gave.

And now Father, I see… You.

I see you when I ponder upon what you say,
when I go to church each Sabbath day.
I see you when I let you show me your way
by partaking the water and the bread,
choosing to be eternally fed.
I hope you teach my spirit each day
to remember my prayers, and never sway.
& when life is over, and I’ve endured to the end,
let Jesus put his arm around me,
as my brother and friend.
