there are many who misuse Your Word;
there are many who devalue the Scriptures.
I see and hear,
I read and peruse,
and my heart is saddened;
anger threatens to rear its ugly head
against those who do not understand.
may anger not control my actions
but rather compassion for those who are in err.
to those who take Your Word as something
to suit their own desires;
redefining Your Word according to the culture;
according to the masses.
to those who do not understand.
Grant ears of faith,
to those who do not and will not listen.
Grant me patience,
that I may be a steadfast beacon of light;
for this world needs Your Truth.
May I never back down
and may I never fail to glorify You.
In Jesus name I pray,
The Pastor -|—
