When we communicate with God,
we must rely on concentration.
To concentrate on God is to hear Him,
and pour out our words of adoration.
We might picture Him in our mindís eye
to send up our needs and lift up others.
He hears our poignant heartfelt prayers
for saints who are our sisters and brothers.
As we are asked to perform in His name,
we must concentrate, give glory to Him.
He gave us talents and spiritual gifts,
we must not honor ourselves on a whim.
We must also believe in Christ, our Lord,
through Him is the way to reach the Father.
To pray to Jesusí holy name, Godís Son,
who sits at Godís right hand, not another.
Talk to God, He is your loving father,
send love, praise, thanksgiving above the clouds.
Do not let worldly thoughts distract the flow,
nor speak of them in whispers or aloud.
I know the Lord walks by my side each day,
celestial angels guard me through the night.
Now I wait for the time I see Jesus;
as floods subside, Iíll see the dove of light.
