Prayer warrior


There was nothing frail about her;
clad in the armour of a warrior,
as she lay propped up in her bed,
her cheeks all flushed and ruby red.

She called them up, one by one
as she put them all before the Son
Who gave His life to set them free
so they could live life fearlessly.

She mentioned sickness, pain and strife
as she pleaded for abundant life
for those she held dear in her heart
though their lives were torn apart.

She called temptation by its name
and begged that it be put to shame,
asked for wisdom in its place
for those who met it face to face.

This grey old girl, her body small
stood in her prayers erect and tall,
for she knew her Father’s loving care
would keep the ones mentioned in prayer.
