Pouring Out

Father,

Grace

Is Your Spirit --

A mighty water

Quenching desert-souls.

Grace

Is the Jesus-Legacy --

Enriching us with the Wealth

Of Your Kingdom's Land.

Grace

Is the sign

That You did not forget us --

Your Hand shaped clay

Entwined with flesh and bone.

Grace

Is the Heart of God,

Your Heart --

A Heart without usury.

Father,

Let me not be a soul-miser,

Trafficing in my will's pennies,

No, rather let me

Traffic in the Bank of Your Love --

Grace.

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.
