A Prayer
Poetry by Anne S. Moore

Heavenly Father,
May I be childlike
before You,
trusting,
not pulling away,
but
lifting my hand
to Yours
to be led down
unknown paths.

I do not fear.
You see—You know
where I am today
and where I will be
tomorrow.
Yes,
You are El-Roi,
God All Knowing.

You are Jehovah-Rohi,
my Shepherd,
and I
a helpless lamb.
You gently carry me
in your arms
and bring peace
to my soul
because
You are my
Jehovah-Shalom.

You are Elohim,
my Creator.
You molded me and
gave me breath.
You will bring
healing
in your way,
in your time.
You are my
Jehovah-Rapha.

You will supply
my smallest need
and biggest.
I see the sparrow,
the field flowers.
Why should I worry?
You are my
Jehovah-Jireh.

I am not alone, for
You are with me.
You are here.
You are
Jehovah-Shamma.
You will never never
leave me.
