Another Lord's Prayer

Recommended Posts

(after reading Gospel of John 11:1-44)

 

Jesus prayed, on the outskirts of Bethany,

We heard Him thank the Father before anything,

The kind of prayer only the Son could pray,

Yet the words He spoke were like leaving holy seed,

“You always hear me”, talking to the Father so free,

Astounding confidence, His words

Bypassed any free-fall on the way to Abba’s ears,

“For the benefit” of others gathered around a cave,

So that the power of God would open doors

Of our misunderstood mortality,

That we might believe the things the Lord calls forth,

And before receiving--know there was a sovereign sending.
