If My People Will Pray

Can you hear me in the whisper
Not the earthquake, fire or wind
But I’m softly speaking to you
If you’ll only let me in

Can you see me in their faces
They need to know me more
My mercy sends you to them
Teach them what their mouth is for

If my people will pray
If my people will seek my face
If my people will turn
Turn from their wicked ways
If my people will pray
If my people will find humility
If my people will pray
They’ll be forgiven

I spoke to Moses through a burning bush
And Adam when the world was new
I spoke to Jacob as an angel
And I’m speaking now to you

If my people will pray
If my people will seek my face
If my people will turn
Turn from their wicked ways
If my people will pray
If my people will find humility
If my people will pray
They’ll be forgiven

    I like it. Hey, you were talking about writer’s block. If you ever want…we have a weekly challenge or assignment to keep you writing without pressure to be perfect. You can find it on our myspace page. There is a link on my blog called TPS on MySpace.

    Later,

    Porterfield
