A Prayer for Healing by Njabulo Nkambule
As days goes by
My life racing, my whole body aging,
While my bones are getting exhausted and cracking.
My heart slowly beating,
To realize that it’s just a new day,
Yet another day on a calendar.
I’m overwhelmed with so much sorrow,
As the darkness still haunts my soul,
Questions asked but answers still pending.
There’s still so much hidden,
As my life is still unfolding,
Unfolding the dreams you sowed in my heart.
Permit me to serve you,
All the days of my life,
Raise me to do your bidding every day.
It’s a prayer for healing
I ask you to grant me the serenity
To accept everything I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can
And wisdom to differentiate between both.
I know, hardships are a bridge to peace,
I accept them as they are.
I surrender to your will,
For I know you will definitely make things fall into place for me in no time.
I need you by my side to light and guide,
To rule and guard my life,
Create a smile on my face,
A heart filled with so much love,
Strengthen all my weaknesses,
Remove all the burdens on my shoulder.
I have so much to be grateful for.
Show me the way
This feels like a night
I ask for a light in my life to free me from everything.
This is a prayer for healing
