POEMS BY MY HAND

Prayer and Encouragement


May the Lord God guard and protect you

And all that is yours.

May He enlighten your heart

And strengthen you like young eagles.


May the Lord God grant you Wisdom

And the patience to apply it.

May He teach you Love

And the perseverance to live it.


And when He chooses to chastize you--

He does so to all His beloved;

It is the only way to really change us--

May you continue in the Faith and not rebel.


And may you in the end come forth like gold,

A 'look-alike' of Christ Jesus Himself;

Loving even your enemies, blessing those that curse.

May He bless you and make you a blessing.


Amen!
