As I sat helpless because I didnít pray,
He decided to take advantage of that opportunity one faithful day.
Because I didnít seek God for wisdom, knowledge and understanding,
He was able to attack me right where I was standing.
Because I allowed resentment, regret and unforgiveness to linger in my heart,
He knew of where I was spiritually, right where to start.
Because I didnít take the time to give daily worship and praise to the Savior,
He knew of my unawareness and unconcerned behavior.
Before I knew it, he was on top of me undressing me with hate,
And I couldnít stop him, it was much too late.
He overpowered me because I didnít seek power from on high;
Therefore, I had no help, no way to deny
Him invading my mind, heart, body and soul
And using his strength and manipulation to control
My movements, my thoughts, my very fears.
It was all because I went without fellowship for so many years.
Satan ravished me and I could not stop his attack.
He took advantage of the faith that I lacked.
He ripped off every shred of hope by holding me down with selfishness and greed,
And he wouldnít let me go regardless of how I would plead.
When he was done with his merciless invasion of my little faith,
I realized that Satan had successfully committed my first spiritual rape.
