An Abused Child's Prayer


Photobucket
My past is always present
Where my future is concerned.
Although I strike the matches
Not every bridge is burned.
Photobucket
Help me to seek forgiveness
For the one who did me wrong.
It's the hardest thing I'll ever do
Yet I know I must be strong.
Photobucket
I'm sorry if I doubted You
Or denied You in someway.
But children who live with abuse
Never trust enough to pray.
Photobucket
You've allowed me time to seek
The truth and face it without fears.
I know I'm not the one at fault
Although I blamed myself for years.
Photobucket
Innocence cannot bear guilt
Except what's written on Your Page.
The load got much too hard to lug
And the silence screamed in rage!
Photobucket
You brought freedom, peace, and love
Yet Your Will has been revealed.
So I ask for mercy for the one
Whose sin I have concealed.
 
 His Mercy Endures Forever,
(c)Doris Jacobs-Covington
Photobucket
"Blessed are the merciful
for they shall obtain mercy."
Matthew 5:7
