Power-Promise

"... you will receive power when the Holy Spirit
comes upon you ...." Acts 1:8

Father,
Send the Holy Spirit,
Your Son's Power-Promise,
The Fire to burn away
My soul's aging weeds.
Send the Holy Spirit,
Your Son's Power-Promise,
The Spine, the Back, that
Makes strong and enduring
My soul's journey to You.
Send the Holy Spirit,
Your Son's Power-Promise,
The Open Exit
From the world and the flesh.
Send the Holy Spirit,
Your Son's Power-Promise,
The brick paved Path leading away
From vacant loneliness and heart-loss.
Father,
Visit my soul's cell, dwell there
With The Spirit and The Son,
Let it be a fortress of silence, a stand
Before the assault of the senses and the world's cares.

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.
