"For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword....'Hebrews 4:12


As an anchor,

I will sink into Your Word,

Fathom deep into "God-Speak," and

Be loosened from the sand's shore.

And there, find


Breathing and pulsing Words,

Words more like torches,

Stars pointing home --

The gift of life-sight;


Heating my soul,

Words with steam,

Vigor Word, push Words,

Driving away the demons

From their watch;


Slicing through the fat

Of doubt and defense

To my soul's heart,

To my core marrow, and there

Open, open, open.


Let my heart hold these Words,

Let my tongue speak these Words,

Let my feet walk these Words.

Thank You.

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.
