Turning   

"...and, they shall turn, and I shall heal them." Matthew 13:15

Father,

Turn
My soul's face
To the fields of Your Kingdom. And,
When my neck is stiff for turning, I will call out
For the warmth of Your Grace. Then,

Turn
My soul's heart,
Often fattened with doubt's feed,
To sing of Your Kingdom,
Chanting It's spring-like hopes and plans
With a heart trust muscled. Then,

Turn
My soul's eyes
To vision Your Kingdom,
View Your Glory,
Your Splendor, and
Be dazzled by Your Light. Then,

Turn
My soul's ears
To hear Your Kingdom,
Listen to Your Words,
Their tones and harmony, and
Take in Your Will as my will.

Father,

Let the red life of Your Grace
Flow through my soul's veins,
Then, I will turn and
Rise up from my valley to Your Lofty Land; and
Bow to Your Kingship
In obedience to Your Commands, and
Be healed.

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.
