In the Chambers of Our Hearts

Christ, as our intercessor,
our advocated before God
pleading our case
our prayers before the Lord
what we ask
offered to God

In the chambers
of our hearts
Christ preparing
a house of prayer

Not in the brick and mortar
the temple of our lives instead
painted by his blood
in worship ever
raising our prayers to God
