POEM FOR WEEK OF PRAYER

Here is a poem my friend Ken Kuhlken (click here for Perelandra College) sent me. It is by his friend Olga Savitsky, from her book Shockabonda

CALL TO FAST…CALL TO PRAY

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to the forever fast

Call to the forever fast

Call to fast guilt

Call to fast shame

Call to fast condemnation

I put them in His forever furnace

Call to fast doubt

Call to fast worry

Call to fast fear

I put them in His forever furnace

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast the frailty of the flesh

Call to fast the fruitless works of fury

Call to fast the facade

Yes, I put them in His forever furnace

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast…Call to pray

Call to fast our Adamic past

Call to fast our need to be the first and last

Call to fast our need to be as gods

Call to fast where we still need to be worshipped

Call to fast where we still want to be adored

Call to fast where we still crave appreciation

Call to fast where we still require thanksgiving

Call to fast…Call to pray

Yes, We His Forever Family

In His Forever Furnace

On His Forever Fast
