PRAYERFULLY

Palms upward receptivity

In a silent, pleading vain,

Eyes were closed, lips were moving

In this comfort she would remain.

 

 

Comfort, yes, yet pleading softly,

Moving in a watchful heart.

This heart moved to a loving Father

Holding still a faithful part.

 

 

A part of the truth containing all

Containing all in quiet peace,

Unmindful of all those around

Such prayer and praise will never cease.

 

 

What prayer? What praise? It is what I feel

When those half-raised I see

And feel the Spirit close at hand

Where I always want to be!

 

 

Yes, her hands were there raised upward

Pronouncing her proclivity (*)

Her lips moved in still petition

In her receptivity.

 

 

(*) Proclivity: Inclination, tendency
