Lord Give Me A Burden (poem)

Distractions

@creationswap/ Jonathan Zajas

By Lewis E. Thomas

I call myself a Christian trying to walk that Narrow Way
But I seldom read my Bible and I seldom pray!

I have no real burden for a world of lost souls!
I find myself focused on the world and my gold.

I spend many wasted hours watching my T.V.
But seldom find the time to get on my knees!

Lord, open my eyes and please let me see!
The plague of sin and suffering out there in humanity!

Lord, give me a burden for the souls of all men!
Give me a burden for those dying in sin!

Lord, give me a burden for my sister and for my brother!
Lord, please give all mankind a burden for one another!

Lord, my heart is too focused on carnal things!
Please focus my heart on The King of Kings!

Lord, give me a burden in my soul that grieves!
For all those lost souls who do not believe.

I am now 61 years of age and I began writing poetry in the mid eighties to present. I became a Christian in the mid eighties. Poem content often comes to me in a matter of moments and sometimes over several days. The majority of my poetry is God/Bible based for the Glory of God.
