PRAYER: Lord, Let Not My Heart Be Barren Land!

Oh, Father
Help Me To Bury
The Good Seed Of Your Holy Word
In The Prepared Ready And Waiting
Ground Of My Heart!

Oh, How I Pray
That My Ground
Is Not Barren Land
But
Good And Fertile Soil
Hungry
To Accept The Abundant Water
Of The Holy Spirit
And
That I May Be In A Place Where
The Holy, Healing, Healthful, Son-Light
Will Abundantly Cause
Your Precious Seed In Me
To Germinate
And Grow
And Leaf
And
- Constantly Watered -
By That Gracious Spirit
To Bear Precious Fruit
- And In Abundance -
All Suitable
For The Welcome
And
Banqueting Table Of My Lord!

Father,
I Look With Faith's Longing Eyes
And
Hope's Yearning Heart
To That Glorious Day Of Rejoicing
In The Beautiful Land
Of
Peace And Rest!
What A Day That Will Be!

My Eyes Have Not Seen!
My Ears Have Not Heard
But
My Belief And My Love
And
My Precious Faith
In The Surpassing, Unfailing
Faith And Righteousness Of My Lord Christ
Paints The Scenic And Lofty Panorama
Without Height
Without Depth
Without Width
Without Distance
Outside Of Time
Devoid Of Scope
And
Reveals Our Achieved Hope
And Points
Ever Points To More
In The Realm Of Eternity!
Let My Faith Become Sight!

I Desire To See My Savior
The Lord
My Forever Friend!
I Desire To Live With Him
In The Peaceful Land
Where Decay
Cannot Offend!

I Desire To Hear From His Lips
The Real Story Of My Salvation
The Story That Shows
All
That I Could Not Know
But Which Was Wrought
For My Good
And God's Glory -
I Want To Bless My Faithful Lord's 
All-Hearing Ears
With The Song 
Of
My Then-Forever-Clean Heart!

In The Meanwhile, Lord
In This Realm That Hosts Night
Please 
Prepare My Heart
Tune My Voice
Embolden My Spirit
Ever
Always
To Sing Your Glorious Praise!

Help Me To Keep
A Song Of Zion In Heart
A Word Of Truth In My Head
A Healing Balm In Hand
A Soft Word On My Tongue
Heavens Light In My Eye
And
My Foot Permanently Placed
On The Path To Paradise
Praying
Ever Praying The Promises
And
Trusting In Him
Who Gives The Beyond Understanding
Peace!
I Love You, Lord!
AMEN.
