Just one more chance, please.

Precious prayers
said upstairs
on my knees
Change me.
Make me.
Mold me.
Hold me.

Take me back to that
Which YOU wanted me to be
Back to that
Which YOU created me to be
Before, I made all the mistakes
And took YOU out and inserted more of me.
Becoming more than lost.
Personally, I know that I'm not deserving...
That's why these prayers are so precious.

See, from what I've read...
Christ paved the way... for my life, for my soul...
His blood was shed
And it's that blood that covers my sins
Those that I did, do, and have yet to be done
And the reason that I continually bow my head
Praying for HIS guidance, strength, and wisdom.

I'm more than a lost lamb.
I'm a lamb in a world amongst wolves
It's hard to dream, concentrate, and stand
When I can feel them biting at my hooves

Also there are those that don't seek any meat.
Their purpose is to mentally destroy
The humble, lowly, meek, and sweet.
Devouring them from the inside out.
Taking all that they ever dreamed of or hoped of becoming...
By words spoken from their own mouth.
Doomed to live a life of doubt.
They become people that don't even try. Believers of a lie.

You see, that's why...
these prayers are so precious.
These... are my chance.
My gleam of hope.
My call to my saviour.
LORD, save me, guide me, pull my rope.
Keep me close.
I don't want to succumb to the world
Watch my dreams, hopes become intangible and fade away like a ghost.

So, this I pray...
Touch me.
Transform me.
Enable me,
Mold me,
And conform me to your will.

Make me over again.

Cover Me

I am only that of clay.
Clay, a refined mud…
With a determination to change.
Hopefully not in vain, can’t do it on my own.
So, I wallow in Jesus Christ’s blood.
& I move forward in HIS name.

Oh cover me.

Passion misguided
Misguided hope… about lost
Lost in dreams
Dreams deferred
Deferred at my cost
Cost my life

Please pray with me that I don’t make the same mistake twice.

Cover me.

Day and night…
Strengthen me,
Enhance my sight,
Enable me,
Guide me,
On a path that’s right.

Help me maintain in this thing called life.

Cover me.

Let it be my name that rolls off your lips.
Pray for my good in all circumstance.
Keep me in good health, body and mind.
Draw me close to the LORD…
So that I may find peace in HIS time.

Cover me.

And I’ll cover you.
You and I
Two of like mind
Gather in HIS name
HE will be present
The result, Change.

In HIM, you are.

Feeling out of the loop?
Have to wear too many hats?
Want a chance to recoup?
But lost your identity somewhere way back?

Thinking that you're only a flashlight in a realm of stars.
Don't think that you're worthy, appreciated, or needed.

I'm here to tell you,

In HIM, you are.

So, now you are Mr. or Mrs.
A brother, sister, aunt, uncle, mom, or dad
Reminiscing on the freedom of your youth
Or the perception of the belief of the freedom that you once had.

Now you have more responsiblities,
many eyes look unto you.
Back then, you were only a student
Now you are a teacher.
Leading, teaching, showing others...
a proper direction to move.

You've been elevated...
And are not just limited to the depths of the skies.
The LORD has entrusted you in the development of young minds.
Not to mention, HE knows your heart, therefore HE allows you to touch lives.

You're not bound by rope.
You're not tied by a chain.
You're not encircled by a ring.
You're not defined by a name.

You are, because HE needed you to be.
You've made and make a difference in the world.
You are the definition of free...

In HIM, you are.
