A Cabin Prayer by Dick Funnell

As you come to seek and pray, For strength to follow in His way, Know every blade of grass and tree, Cry forth His heart's deep care for thee. For those that come to rest and see The good things God does constantly, His love surround and help you grow As sure you see these waters flow. When self doubt and low esteem Flood in to trash your fondest dream, I pray He open wide your eyes To see yourself His dearest prize. If confusion is your plight Conflicting paths attract your sight, Into His presence come, be still And taste the pleasure of His will. For those who long to see His face Be bold to enter in His grace, He's set His gaze upon your heart To guide your thoughts, and strength impart. If impatience plagues the soul And fear proclaims you'll miss your goal, Observe how changing seasons tell God's in control and all is well. If a quarrel brings you here Allow the Prince to draw you near, With balsam of His Peace be filled Through kindness let all hate be killed. If you bring sorrow or dispair And carry pain or load of care, Please know His burden yours can be His yoke of love will set you free. If anger in your breast does burn And cause your guts to wrench and churn, Remember how Christ died for you, And His same love forgives them too. Perhaps you've come ensnared by sin That saps your strength and draws you in, Release is yours, just lift your voice And Godly sorrow affirm your choice. If disease and illness test God's greatest treasure in earthen vest, May healing oil from life be poured Your body touched and hope restored. If loneliness has been your friend And proved that love must always end, Here find the One companion true Whose greatest wish is to be with you. If you seek wisdom just lift your eyes To see His pattern in changing skies, Blowing and flowing, in, over and through Be still and listen for His voice in you. If you bring happy thanks to give To He who reigns and ever lives, Then make fair contest with the birds To see who wins with fairer words. If yours is joy untold to sing And fill this house with noisome ring, And dance and rhythm move your feet Then leave some here the next to greet!
