Silently Pray

Hear me Lord as I pray
Going out on patrol today
Weapons loaded, gear on my back
I am ready for any attack
Walking through towns on patrol
Ready for a fight to unfold

Hear me Lord as I silently pray
Show me and my squad the way
Eyes looking all around
Shots ring out, we hit the ground
M-16s firing back
I pray silently we survive the attack

In my mind I say the Lord’s prayer
Gunships firing, flying through the air
Hear me Lord as I silently Pray
Help me and my buddies survive this day

Hear me Lord I’m glad you heard my prayer
I will give myself to you with great care
I return to my rack and close my eyes
Take a deep breath and silently cry
Today thank GOD was not the day for me to die
Hear me Lord I thank you for my life
So I can return home to my kids and wife

Silently Sobbing short poem

Sobbing silently You had slipped away I needed you now Sadness grew My heart is empty With a perfect smile A mask to the world I close the door Hoping it won’t leave a trace The ghost of the past


Pray long poem

Persistently Reaching And Yearning for a blessing and your Grace. Pursuing Relentlessly After You from my knees, clenched hands to my face. Before speaking with you O Lord my mind always raced, life situations sealed my fate, this wicked world

Let Us Pray

Let Us Pray short poem

Whatever it is that we may see Whatever it may be that we shall hear Whatever enters our hearts and makes us fear We shall but be silent, and place covers over our ears We shall but look faithfully to
