A Prayer

The remnant that remains,
From the exile there;
Experience the pains,
From the burdens they bear.

Hardship and reproach,
As the wall becomes breached;
As foreigners encroach,
As the gates had been reached.

They had burned down the gates,
I abruptly sat down;
For what the future waits,
They overrun this town.

The crying and mourning,
Prevailed for many days;
Praying as the scorning,
From their immoral ways.

Continued prayer and fast,
Before our Lord God;
As the darkness does cast,
Showing that they are flawed.

Please O God of Heaven,
The great and awesome God;
A covenant given,
That we honor and laud.

A loving covenant,
That we love and obey;
Give us encouragement,
So that we will not stray.

May Your ear be captive,
With eyes able to see;
In being reactive,
That we can be set free.

I repent and obey,
Your commands to do them;
Not to be fallen prey,
To strangers that condemn.

I beseech onto You,
To listen what I say;
I am faithful and true,
In following Your way.
