To My Father

May You loose the ties that bind me
From the evil desiring to find Me
Holding dungy idols dear
Falling to ungodly fear
Jealousy, strife, malice and sin
So with lack of repentance
they may enter in
And steal my soul
You gave to me
To keep me close
For eternity
With Thee, my Blessed Father.
May You instruct me in Truth
Though no longer a youth
May you raise me from here
As a Teacher so dear
So close to my heart
We never shall part
My soul in Your keeping
Safe from the creeping
Insidious snake
Working to take
My soul in his hole
his ultimate goal
For all Your Creation
In every nation
For hatred of Thee
For eternity
May it not happen to me
Due to Thy Holy Spirit.
Please grant me Wisdom
Humility, Faith,
Mercy and Patience
So I may wait
And hold very still
To listen for You
Your Sovereign Wiil
Reaching through
The static untrue
Due to the spirit of the air.
May she find my shoulder
Your Wisdom True
Before I get older
And not know what to do
If You call me to serve You
And I do not hear
If the devil pursues me
And I run in fear
If Your people need help
And I do not see
If my prison door opens
And I do not flee
I so want to be
One heart, soul and mind
With Thee
And not miss out
On anointing oil
Your Name on my forehead
To prove I am loyal
To all of Your Statutes
Commandments and Laws
Have shed my dross
Have shunned my flaws
Have passed Your tests
And finished the race
To stand before Thee
In Your Holy Place
No longer sinful
Rebellious and wild
But worth acceptance
As Your precious child
Into Your Realm of Possibilities
And take on new
Responsibilities
In Your Kingdom Come
Where Your Will is Done
As in Heaven
Also on earth
And make Your Heart glad, Father
You granted me birth.
Amen

Therefore Jesus said; When once you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I Am He and that I do nothing of My Own initiative, but just as The Father taught Me I speak these things. And He that sent Me is with Me; He did not abandon Me to Myself, because I always do things pleasing to Him. John 8:28. 29

Wisdom is the prime thing. Acquire Wisdom; and with all that you acquire, acquire understanding. Proverbs 4:7

For here I AM creating new heavens and a new earth, and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart. Isaiah 65:17
