The Garden of My Heart

As I come early to the Garden of Prayer
I search diligently for my Lord
He said that He would meet me here
this One that is so adored.
I'm amazed at all the beauty here
that meets my every glance
And I am lifted up in Spirit
as I gaze at the great expanse.

I stroll through this beautiful garden
so full of His Healing Power
I stand still in a moment of silence
as I take in a beautiful flower.
There resides a Healing Power
in all that I behold
And in this beautiful garden
His mysteries begin to unfold.

I stand in awe at the surroundings
at all His Hand has made
Simply for my enjoyment and to
appreciate all He has displayed.
He appears and takes me by the hand
this One I love so very much
I am transformed and healed so quickly
simply by His touch.

As we stroll together in the garden
we speak of all that He has done
For He truly loves His children
each and every one.
I must depart and take His message
that is so full of light
And bring it here to you today, to you
who is lovely in His sight.

So throw off the chains that bind you
and walk into His wondrous Light
He is there to walk along with you
this is your birthright!
There is nothing that is more freeing
than to go to the Garden of Prayer
He will greet you with open arms
for you are truly His Heir!

me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and
find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
