I Pray

as published in Stars in Our Hearts

I woke up today
And started to pray
But today was not the same
My heart was heavy
My burden was great
 I asked God about his will
Why it was my place to heal
Why Lord do you want me
To help them today?
When I do, I get rejection
 I do not understand my submission
I am always ready to do your work
Even though I am used and hurt.
The response I heard made my
Heart sink
God said it was a lesson to seek
 I want you to learn
About my mercy and grace
 If do it for them, you will receive the same
Not everything I do will you understand
But seek me and give me your hand
My children are scattered
I want them to come home
To win this battle, I need you
My sweet child.
And as he was speaking to my heart, you see
My revelation grew deep
Now when I help others
I feel the thorns of love
I can feel the blood,
Running down my side
As they reach out and take
My helping hand
I feel them slap me and
Spit on me once again
I hear them curse me
As my heart shatters
I feel the hurt and
Rejection the humiliation
Of my tear-stained cheeks
He sad we are not alone
Go tell everyone
This is what my son felt
When he sat on that throne
He was sent to save all
Of you
He did his job well
Now because of Jesus you
Will not go to hell.
So, before you cry again
And ask me about my will
Lend a helping hand and
Spread the word through the land
It was not my son’s cross
He was nailed foot and hand
