Be with me
If I could ask of You one thing, what would it be?
To see into the future
Or maybe to return again the way from which I came.
A peek at Your Love Plan,
Or to shadow a day-in-the-life of the great I AM.
Answers would be nice, to Life’s impossible questions—
The truth of Time,
And why the heart must break.
Could I have Your word that all will be well, always.
Would I use my precious ask to plead for forgiveness for all the many ways I’ve gotten it wrong.
Or just say thank you.
Could I ask if You are proud of me?
Or for assurance that something marvelous is planned for the Hereafter.
Maybe I would ask how to love like You love
Yes, I could certainly ask for joy
And a little of that peace beyond all understanding.
But what I really want to ask of You is:
—Be with me—
now. whatever happens. forever.
This is my prayer.
