The finest commendation is the first:
That Jesus, as come into manhood, prayed;
Thus in a perfect Man a perfect thirst
For speaking to the Father was portrayed.
And since then generations of His saints
Sought for their Father or their Lord to tell
Their needs and thoughts - and even their complaints -,
Were listened to, and knew that all was well.
Since Jesus as a Man could understand
Our need for prayer He made it His command;
The Father has expressed His love to hear
The voices of His sons as they draw near;
So let us go, leaning on one another,
To confidently speak to Him, my brother.


  1. Very nice. I haven't written much of my own stuff in years. Hope the "muse" returns! God bless

  2. Beautiful thoughts on prayer, David. I especially like the line "Thus in a perfect Man a perfect thirst." You capture our need, our longing to connect with God.


I'm glad to hear how this strikes you!
