Praying Through Poetry
by Joy Lenton
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
Joy is a grace-dweller and storyteller who weaves words out of the fabric of her days. Her desire is to seek the poetic in the prosaic and look for the eternal in the temporal.
As an M.E and chronic illness sufferer, who is also recovering from a painful past, she writes with a heart for the hurting and to support and encourage others who are struggling with life and faith issues.
