My Prayer:

A Man I Can Trust


Someone to tell me

The hard truth

When it would be easier

To tell me

The Convenient Lie.


Someone to love me

As you love the Body

But also to receive

My love as nourishment

For his body, soul, and spirit.


Someone to hold me

When I am a frightened little girl

And to respect me

As his closest ally.


You are my Husband now,

And you hold me close

To your heart,

But one day you will

Release me to him,

And keep us both in

Your Sovereign Care.
