A Black Man's Prayer

Dear Lord:

Could you find the time to awaken me from the Grave of My Mind and treat me like Lazarus?

Tell Me to Rise and Come Forth for I have been deceased for quite sometime…

Remove the shackles of my mind and bind them to Your Will…

Treat Me Like Lazarus Lord…

Show me how to take off those tapes of disappointment and how to Stand Like A Man…

Let me hear the call that takes my foot out of the grave that others have set before me, by their lack of faith in me, by their treatment of me…

Treat Me Like Lazarus Lord…

Awaken me with a renewed mindset that refuses to bend until the personal nightmares end...

Stir my soul with new fire and increase my desires to rise from 3/ 5 treatment by those who oppose my very existence...

Make me strong in my walk again, strong in my talk again, and strong in my appearance in the eyes of others...

I have been asleep too long and My Family Needs Me to Rise Again, like the SUN… Like He who was called Your Holy Son…

This is a Black Man's Prayer to You Lord, in the Many Names That You Are...

Treat Me Like Lazarus...

If only I could send this out to those who need it without their taking an offense. I can only pray, one day... GBY
