ORATORIUM

MY PLACE OF PRAYER

The glorious life giving sun … A howl at mystical blood red moon … Uncountable stars … Pacific blue and emerald green oceans … Snow capped unscalable mountains … As earth meets the sky … Thank You … YHWH

Men and women made in Your image with the hope of eternal life Our innermost deepest desire being our ‘long home’ prepared by You … For some, many, ‘this desire can be a bridge too far… Dashed on the rocks by our pursuits of the flesh … All the things that this world offers … We are finding our way through this space-time continuum … This limited measure of life … Seventy-six years or so … Our lives really but a blink of the eye … From Your heavenly eternal perspective, we must appear like blades of grass … Arriving for a season and suddenly gone ( a vapor, if you will ) …

So … Who can know You Oh Lord? … Yet, when I open my inner sky and behold all You have created … There You are, everything a reflection of Your glory …

Thank You for a brain … Two eyes to behold … A mouth to speak the miracle of language … Ears to hear “the orchestra of life“… Thank You for the gift of smell … Strong legs to walk and then run … Divine hands to touch … A miraculous heart that supplies blood to my fearfully and wonderfully made body …

I stand in awe of your creation… As everything is in some kind of relationship, sun, moon, and stars … Rotating, revolving, in carefully calculated unison … Also like, the gift of what goes on between a man and a woman … Desires so strong, guaranteeing the perpetuation of the human race … When I get to heaven, if allowed to speak … My first words to You my Lord shall be … Thank You … Originally written in December of 2008 … Slightly rewritten in December of 2020 … copyright … Coy ( Frank) Payton … littleraventhepoet.blog …

THANK YOU…
