A Prayer

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

This is a prayer that my brother composed while he was praying for his vocation. I believe that the Holy Spirit embraced him with an overflowing love that could only come from God, to comfort him in his times of loneliness and frustration.

You are the flame, I am the candle

My soul is the wick that holds the flame
Flicker a spark and light up my soul

I am but an instrument of your love

Indeed, in the darkness, O God
,You kindled a fire in my soulin an instant, 

a spark, 

a glimpseof which I can not still comprehend
incomparable, on this dark wide night tempests amount to suppress your light
keep your light burning, your fire , the love you've placed within my heart
Cover me, o God from the rain 
that the flame continually burn

Shield me O God from the wind that threatens to fan out the flame
Support me O God from the earth firm through the tremors and sways
Protect me O God from fiery firelest i be devoured and consumed
For your flame is not the fire that devours
your's is the light that softly glows

Unequaled in greatness yet never pressing

A wonder, how swiftly and gently it flows
Breath into me, O God,that the fire ignited engulf me in time 
keep the flame burning 

Enflame me with your enduring love
Breath into me, O God that the fire in me illumine others
let it show the way 

the way that travails through the void
Breath into me, O God
rekindle others', the weak's, the mindless'
the half burnt wicks of those that stand by
Breath onto me, O God
Especially when the flame flickers
Strengthen me in desolation
Embrace me with your inspirations
O burn me with the fire of your love
into your light melt my human form
smoldering suffering I must face, 
let me do so with delight
I await the day my humanity melts to the ground
Extinguish not the flame, this but I pray
'til the last wisp of smoke, 

the breath of my soul purifed, 

ascends to join you at last.
that your flame now ablaze
