Pray The Worry Away

Before worrying becomes my downfall,
I choose to pray the stress away
to purposefully avoid the mess it causes.
Worrying robs the mind of
the blanket of peace that surrounds it.
Creating illusions that are not real.
It’s a far cry from reality.

Born Again

My mind is at ease,
peaceful as can be.
There is a calm.
I am free.

My heart is whole again,
pure as it should be,
not poisoned by the weight of this world.
I am free.

My soul is singing a song of freedom,
not caged up like an animal that should be out in nature.
I can spread my wings and fly.
I am free.

God is my light.
Today I prayed from my heart
without weight or compromise.
I am finally free.

My Prayer Confession

I often pray for many things,
materialism sometimes tops the list
of my premeditated prayers.

Many times I forget to open my heart,
or better yet, pray from it.

Praying sometimes seemed like a chore
that I hurried to get done,
after I have exhausted myself with worries and stress,
only to feel emptier and more deserted
after my attempt at laying all my burdens down
at God’s feet.
