Oh come now my weary friend
you can’t carry that cross alone.
I know your will is strong
and your resolve is to the bone.
But you keep much too quiet
while inside you grunt and groan.
Oh we all have our strengths
but there are weaknesses we own.
There is a power in confession
that lifts that lethal load
it is a weapon against the deception
that we can attain to perfection.
In this battle for our peace
there is a weapon that we must wield
“confess your faults to one another and pray
so that you might be healed”.
The powerful passionate prayer of
the righteous works a great deal.
