Eyes to Heaven: A Blind Man’s Prayer

Eyes to Heaven: A Blind Man’s Prayer

by Frederick Douglass Grimes, III

Dear Lord, Thank you for this day. Because of you I woke up this morning. Because of you I can feel the sun’s rays on my face this morning.

We have traveled many miles together, halfway around the world and back. You were by my side the entire way. For that I am forever grateful. You have been with me through the good times and surely the bad also, never forsaking me, just trying to show me the right path to take. For 17 years I have been In visual darkness, but you have shown me spiritual brightness. I now know that the only vision that I need Is the vision of your love. You have placed so many beautiful people In my life that no matter what trials and tribulations I face, I know that you will always be by my side.

Only you know what Is next for me In my life. I just pray that you will continue to make me a good person. Give me wisdom, courage, and compassion to always help others the way that they have helped me. Your love Is what makes every day worth living. God, bless the entire world!

Heaven Sent

You keep me and sleep me
on dark chilly nights.
You wake me and take me
to stand in the light.

You feed me and need me
in trials and tears.
You feel me and heal me
from worries and fears.

You charm me and warm me,
so gentle and kind.
You thrill me and fill me
with laughter inside.

You know me and show me
the beauty of life.
You sing me and bring me
a song of delight.

You hold me, enfold me
in love without bounds.
For Heaven has given
the blessing we found.

It Took You

It took you to do that for me.

1. You got me to talk when I wouldn’t,
And you got me to smile when I couldn’t.
They say for everyone there’s a special one to love.
I believed and now I see it’s true.
Refrain:

2. You got me to sing through the trials,
And you got me to skip across the miles.
Everything’s the same, but my point of view has changed.
The llight is shining bright between us two.
Refrain:

‘Cause I couldn’t understand the perfection of the plan
Until love revealed the mystery through you!
Refrain:

It took you to do that for me.

Refrain:
[And] it took you
To show me proof
That dreams really do come true.
It took you to do that for me.
It took you to do that for me!

Peace Day

Today is the Autumn Equinox, as well as International Day of Peace. World Peace is a noble goal; however, Peace begins with, and within each one of us.

On this International Day of Peace,
We cannot ask when all the wars will cease.

We must look with wisdom so deep inside,
Asking when in us will the Peace abide?

May we bless each day that we’re blessed to wake,
For the Peace we get is the Peace we make.

Any war outside is a war within,
But the Spirit fights for Its Peace again.

Every step so tiny and moment small
Is a piece of Peace, for one and all.

Though it may not manifest on this Earth,
Peace begins with us, for we give It birth.

For beyond the strife is a Spirit great
With a voice that urges us not to wait.

We must light it now with a flame so strong,
Making Peace the message we pass along.

On this International Day of Peace,
We cannot ask when all the wars will cease.

We must look with wisdom so deep inside,
And attend the flame of a peaceful life.

Centered in the Storm

I wrote these lyrics while I was fasting and praying for those affected by hurricane Irma last Sunday, 9/10/17. My prayers continue for those who were injured, who lost loved ones, and who are still without electricity and other things that have become essential. And may we all be thankful for all the good things and people in our lives, and not take them for granted.

Wind so wild and raging,
Rains are pouring down.
Let Your children rest in
The peace that’s Yours alone.

‘Cause You know all Your children
By name and so much more.
Please show Your grace and peace O Lord,,
Centered, centered in the storm.

News of devastation,
Everything at stake.
Still Your love is stronger
Than any storm that breaks.

‘Cause You know all Your children
By name and so much more.
Please show Your love and power,
Centered, centered in the storm.

“We don’t know Your purpose
Or understand Your ways.
Guide us and protect us;
Thy will be done,” we pray.

‘Cause You know all Your children
By name and so much more.
Please help us sing Your praises,
Centered, centered in the storm.

‘Cause You know all Your children
By name and so much more.
And life is for Your glory,
Even centered in the storm.

For You are centered in the storm.
Centered in the storm,
You are centered in the storm.
