Dear Lord, I know of people
whose lives are filled with woe.
Brother, sister, stranger, friend,
who fight the Ancient Foe.

Lead me, guide me, use me, Lord,
my self extend to aid;
smile, prayer, or gentle touch,
let worries briefly fade.

Father, I ask this only,
to comfort aching breast.
To give what others have not--
compassion, mercy, rest.

When loved ones turn and walk away,
may I still stand my ground.
Someone needs a helping hand;
in me may it be found.

Employ my life dear Jesus,
to succor failing hope.
Engage me as a vessel
serving useful in this scope.

A shoulder they can lean on,
an ear that they can bend;
a heart to weep in concert,
Your love to them extend.

I wait on Your keen wisdom
to show me in Your way;
The heart that needs Your footprints,
to ease them through this day.

-- Amen

A lovely prayer, written with mastery of the poetic elements of rhyme and meter. The whole package.

Everyone should have the attitude described in this poem. Good work.
