On My Knees, O My Lord

Pen in hand the paper blank with her thoughts
Time ticks by as the clock tick-tocks- the two intertwine
Why does time stand still when your child gets hurt?
Then comes the questions why?

Repeat this emptiness, I feel my heartbreak once again
Dear God, I can’t take this, my heart was on the mend
Oh my God! Hold me still in your arms for the depth is too deep and there is quietness among men

Father, Father carry me through this darkness because I can’t see the light
Troubles are deep and I pray for some relief of this pain I have inside
Dear God, help me because I can’t do this again
I don’t have it in me please carry me again and again Amen

My child is hurt, my child yet again, how and why and oh God, please help him because he fell…
Heal his brain, heal his thoughts, help him no matter what the cost
Because we've been through this before and O my Lord, dear Jesus I cry out to you now!
Heal his wound, make him better as I cry out loud!

I just can’t… sadness… grief as the water fills my eyes with rivers that quake
Tears pour down my face as the waterfalls rushing waters with no words to say
My body shakes as I cry out to you, embrace me in your arms where I feel safe and comfort me this night
Hold my son tight please don’t let him go, oh dear Lord keep him safe we cry out too... show us your Light!

Prayer Warriors take their stand and pray for your Mighty Hand
To touch my child, to heal his brain to stop the blood hemorrhaging once again
God silences the tears, tucks them away ever so gently,
He wipes them away as he heals my son ever so completely...

"Let me paint you a picture - a picture with words"

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of writing poetry!

      Dora, I have always found it amazing how, when our children hurt, we feel the depths of that hurt straight to our hearts and then as I turned to God and asked for help, I kneeled down on my knees in my room and cried out to God and I was sobbing because I was so scared.

      Then all of the sudden, this peace and calm came over my entire body and I stopped crying instantly and that was when I knew God had taken care of everything and that my son would be ok!

      Praise God Almighty!

      When our children hurt, their recovery becomes our priority. Thank God for hearing us on their behalf and offering complete healing. He is the ultimate parent who yearns for the all-round good health of His children. Beautiful conclusion to your poem.

      Thank you Donna, for such a lovely Psalm that, in some ways, remind me of David's 23. It shows us that we with faith are able to trust in God independent of human's medical science.

      Just a few nights ago I felt what I thought was mucus entering my mouth from my right nostril that woke me up. It then began to drip faster and faster so I sat up and three drops dripped in the bed. I ran to the bathroom and let about half of a pint drip into the toilet and I said to God "You have always had my back so I'm not going a doctor." Shortly thereafter, it stopped. That is the kind of faith we need, Give thanks that God is in control and announce our trust that whatever happened is in his hands. That's evidence of faith.

      Thank you very much, John! He is doing so much better and continues to get better every day. He is just tired a lot but that is normal with what he has been through and I am so happy and blessed to know the Lord and how he answers our prayers.

      A touching poem and prayer combined. It is sad that sometimes it take a tragedy like this for many of us to turn to the Lord and pray for help. I hope your son heals completely.
