Pray with me
Pray with me Entwine your fingers with mine Feel my palms sweat and don't shy from the warmth of my vulnerability Pray with me not for me Bow your head with graciousness Stand at my side, not ahead of me or above me Dance to the rhythm of my heart beating feverishly I want to hear your nervous feet shuffling from side to side I want to see the imprint of your big toe through your shoe May our intentions and desires be one. See, I await anxiously, hoping God will see that I really hope and I mean I really hope that the road to hell is NOT paved with good intentions I intend to make a change in this world I intend to give children something good to dream about and chase their nightmares away I intend to clean the filthy I intend to give a hopeful beginning to those who just want it all to end I intend to wake up every morning ...early...and spend an hour with myself There is something magical about holding hands with a stranger.
Don't be alarmed as I tighten my grip I just really needed someone to touch me today I have desperately been waiting for an answer from God Desperately been shining as brightly as I can while filtering through so much darkness I have been holding my arms outstretched I have been kneeling with white paths on my face that begin where my eyes are and end somewhere between my neck and my chin Waterways traveled there many times They irrigate the mask I wear and unveil pieces of all that unravels me. Pray with me Embrace me and let me feel the comfort of your awkwardness Let me know you are waiting for something from HIM too Your are not untainted You are also afraid sometimes You too, wish you could ...everything Pray with me in the middle of the mess Not at the end of the day when its quiet and neat and the candle is lit and its convenient Pray with me, with rollers in your hair or your boxers and your A-shirt on, or with your stained apron that smells of fried chicken and plantain while the kids are saying "Mommy" 5x consecutively...pray with me. While the game is on...pray with me I need the blessing now We need the connection now The calling is now The moment is now The answer is coming now Pray with me because I can't shake the feeling that something heavenly awaits and we don't have to wait till we are at heaven's gate to be a part of something that perfect. Pray with me because I needed you yesterday and the day before and the night before that. Pray with me and I'll pray with you and we can glue each other back together. By: Shaun Liriano
