Yes

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, and the conviction
of things not seen," Hebrews 11:1

Father,

Faith?

The eys of the soul
To see the unseen;
The heart-beat
Of hope.

Faith?

Makes rich and noble
The house of love;
The well of drink
In times of trouble.

Faith?

Steps on despair's scorpion
Whose sting leads to death --
By oneself.

Faith?

Paves the Jesus-Journey
With ease and sureness;

Faith?

The feast
Of joy and peace.

Faith?

The labor
Of birthing Jesus
To the world;

Faith?

Sets free the soul
From slavery's shanty and
Prison's cell.

Father,

One thing I ask;
One thing I seek:
That my thoughts, heart and will
Heat with trust  and conviction
In Your Word, Father,
Made plain by the Risen Jesus, and
Flamed by Tongues of the Spirit, Holy.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
