I Will Keep Praying

by Glendale (Colombo, Sri Lanka)

Thessalonians 16-18

Rejoice always,pray without ceasing,give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

As I say my prayer to You now
May I never cease to fervently do
Whatever my circumstances are
May it be happy, even when I’m blue
The whispers of my heart, the ones said out loud and the ones kept
It can be to say Thank You, I’m sorry and please help.

I know it seems easier to talk to You
When I’m all smiles and glee
But when I struggle and am faced with grief
It’s very difficult to find Thee
Though that may be so
Deep in my heart I know
That I am the one who strays away
I let go of my focus and the light in me loses its glow

At the end of the day even when things seem dim
You never leave my side, You don’t take away my dream
You keep showing me the way yet I turn my back on You
Still, You always hear my prayers, Your presence gets firmer through and through

I am awake once again and I can see clearly
And I pray that I won’t lose my grip,
faithless I wouldn’t want to be
I believe that You are a God of mercy, Your anger doesn’t last for long
Please enlighten me with Your truth
Lord Jesus, help me be strong. Amen.
