‘A Prayer in Consent’

‘A Prayer in Consent’…He may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn man from wrongdoing and keep him from pride, to preserve his soul from the pit, his life from perishing by the sword….—Job 33: 14-22

A Prayer in Consent

Lord†, I look all around me
it's beautiful today
the sun is shining
the world seems happy

then I take a drive
around me, life thrives
a country
beautiful to my eyes
then
what You† deemed
not so rare
how can people
just not care
beautiful trees and bushes
lost amongst the garbage
scattered every where

people with land
ownership
lost outside understand
not willing to give a damn
wreckage lies their land
broken this, broken that
pieces of this, pieces of that
not even trying
if they can
to clean up
see Your† wonderful hand

and where's the vine
can't they be kind
don't they understand
the rhyme
given all this time

evil loves the dirt
a simple flirt
‒the worldly shirt
see all the garbage
there it is
where satan lays his curse
an open door‒
not even having to swerve

all of this showmanship
then all of this lacking
in fellowship

which one is worse

Lord†, whole nations
buried in beauty and dirt
a bold mixture
letting it all flirt

people piled upon people
nothing in the world
takes a break
nothing allowed to breathe

my Lord†, I pray for eyes to open
help them see
exactly what they are doing
help them understand
Your† call 'too much industry'

the need for things
has opened Your† eyes
making people sick
taking people's lives
‒a need to live
not thinking about die


Lord†, the rest of us
have to bear
shut up and stare
watch the rich not care
what can we do
any where

Lord†, appreciation of Your† land
they don't understand
now they are seeking
our land
and even in our land
many aren't grateful
nor do they understand:

the continued pillage
will bring Your† wrath
over time
to put us all
back in line

Lord†, my heavenly Lord†
here I am, Your† servant
begging for eyes to open
to see what they have done
I know…in all this rhythm
something has already begun
‒a correction
the pillage of Your† mountain
without thought‒
it's You† they are pillaging

Lord†, give them a sign
they have forgotten
who they are

all across the earth
they have forgotten
exactly where they came from
they have been conditioned
to forget

all that Your† hand has done
from the curse of servitude to man
to the curse of slavery to man

teach them, Lord†
awaken them
so they may worship You†
to the fullest
so they can be awakened
to truth
to all truth

I ask this in Jesus'† name
amen, amen

Note: I was allowed to choose the photograph today. It is from September 27, 2019: Love from Heaven. God’s light still shines on us even while we are in the dark. All we have to do is seek Him…God’s light has a name. His name is Yeshuah!

(August 5, 2022)—In ‘Sinister’, God beckoned me to pray for you. This morning, I was led through this prayer with David. He wanted me to write this, God did, but I didn’t know how, so I was guided…I was given the words. Then He led me to Job 33:14-22, in particular the words that in bold below.
