a request to God – v3

A request to God
an invitation to join us
ready to worship
to sit in His presence;
Preparing a place
to center, to linger,
to be in conversation
with our God.

A request to God
a real invitation, genuine,
only wanting to be with Him
not a laundry list, a wish list;
Authentic prayer from our hearts
speaking, listening, engaging
as with a conversation
with a best friend.
