Praise the LordPraise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament! 2 Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness! 3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! 5 Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals! 6 Let everything that has breath praise the LordPraise the LordPsalm 150

Expressions of love, joy, praise, commitment, and even disappointments are communicated to God in various ways. Prayers in the form of prose and/or poetry is one of those ways. If you would like to share your original literary works to express your journey with the Lord Jesus and would like it posted at this site, please let Joyce know.

Judgement by Crystal 

Do not judge me, for I am not you. You gawk, you stare; but look away in shame, realizing I see you.

Do not judge me only for my skin color. Do not judge me by where I'm from. For you will always be wrong.

Do not judge  me by my actions; for you do not know my stresses.

Do not judge me because I am silent. Do not judge me by my walk with God.

You stare - I feel watched. Then I laugh to myself as I realize that you are only jealous.

I am a peaceful creature; a child of peace, Hopes Warrior. Do not judge me for I will only become more peaceful.

Do not judge me for my addictions and the way in which I handle them. It's what works for me.

Do not judge me, for I try not to judge you.

My backbone is strong, I can sway in the wind. Like roots in a tree, my legs stand firm.

I am like water, strong and ever-changing: calm, pure, life-giving. I am becoming.

My mind is fierce, filled with the thought of a warrior - balanced with a heart of love.

But how would you know me? You judged me, remember?

I am love, I am love, I am love. . .
