#UTCOP – A Month of Prayer – Praying Through Poetry

Praying Through Poetry

by Joy Lenton


Thanks to Ladyheart at morgue file for the image.


There’s so much grief and pain in our hearts
in a world where lives are torn apart
With war and conflict on every side
we need a safe place, shelter to hide

Men, women, children in captivity
Please provide a way for them to be free
With broken hearts and wounded souls
we need your touch to make us whole

Physically, mentally, we need release
from anxiety, shame, into your peace
When all feels dark and black as night
reveal your presence shining bright



Pray with us this month. Join #UTCOP for a month of prayer. (Tweet this)
