Holy Week Prayer


Holy week is here. In keeping with the tradition of my blog, 
here is a poem and prayer from my dad.  
Have a beautiful and blessed Easter.
~Lori






Dear Jesus,

That day is fast approaching
There is no place to hide.
That day filled with your suffering
My tears well up inside.

It happened on a Friday
How can we call it good?
When you obeyed our Father’s way
Upon the cross of unyielding wood.

Now your cross is my cross
I feel your awful agony.
The thorns, the nails, the total loss
Upon that bitter tree.

But Jesus I must now recall
That you really died for me.
You  gave your very life your all
To bring our Easter victory.
******

……Rockman, Lent 1994

Miss you Pops.

    1. Thanks Melinda. My died died about 5 years ago. He wrote a lot of spiritually inspired poetry. I cherish those poems and prayers penned by him.
