"By faith we understand that the world was designed by the word of God,
so that the things seen were not made of things that are visible."
Hebrews 11:3


You emptied Your Thoughts
Into Your Word,
Unpacked, You spoke: then
Time clicked,
Space stretched out bare, and
Light filled all with treasures --
The Beginning.

There was no before
For the eye to see,
For the ear to hear,
For the hand to touch -
None, "no-thing-ness,"

By Your Word, Your Command,
This vanity of nothingness ceased, and
Your Word fountained a stream --
The Universe, and it was good.

O Your Power and Wisdom!


Your Word, Your Dynamic Wisdom,
Fashioned the world, BUT,
You were not alone.

With Your spoken Word
Was Your Filial Word --
THE Word (John 1:1-5).

The Light glowing in the darkness,
The Light harpies of death flee from,
The Light giving increase to death's dwindle --

Jesus. the Christ of the Resurrection.

O Your Power and Wisdom!

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.
