Faith's Love


In the solitude of prayer,

Done with pride and  will,

I beg You to fill me with faith --

The life-energy of love.

Gate the steel chamber of my doubts,

So to pass through and step into faith's ocean l

And rise with it's tide

As it washes away any bleak twigs of doubt

Left on the sand..


With my mortal eyes

Let me sight Your Immortal Love

Stretched and  suffocating,

Bleeding and nailed,

To a criminal's wood

On Calvay's Mount/

How could I doubt Your Love!!!!!

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.
