Birth Day Prayer


Father, keep her in Your care
Hold her in Your arms
Wrap her in Your embrace
As You have longed to do
Since before her birth

Father, whisper in her ear
The Secrets
Those things destined before time
You chose for her
Those Paths
With adventure waiting
Just round the bend
If only she will venture
To follow You
There

Father, silence the lies
“It is too late…”’
“You have waited too long…”
“Nothing is left…”
Silence the enemy
And the world around her

Father, let her see Your face
Let her see only You
Let her hear only You
Let the truth resonate through her
Let it be like a bell
Chiming the hour
Your chiming
Your hour
It’s Time!

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
