Abba! Father

  • "And because you are children, God has sent the spirit of his
    Son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father.'" Galatians 4:6
  •  
  • Father,

  • I am small, a child, and
    You? My Father, Father Creator:
    The deep and aged Root
    Of all Creation.

  • I am small, a child, and
    You offer  the tender nest
    Of Your Love, so not
    To leave me an orphaned eagle.

  • I am small, a child, and
    You swaddle me in the soft wool
    Of Your Warmth, and
    Feed me with the milk of hope.

  • Father,
    I am small, a spark
    Leaping from Your Fire, so
    Quicken and eager my soul
    For Your Covenant --

  • You, my Father; I, Your child,
    Mediated by the Blood of Your Son,
    With love as Your command:
  •  
  • Seal this on my child's heart.

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.
