Poetry as Prayer – From First Cry To Final Breath

By Cara EdigerCara Ediger

(While reading Michelle Obama, A Life)

From first cry to final breath,
You cover us with love.

From first cry to final breath, 
you share our suffering.

Lead us to the cross,
And beyond it on the road---
We ask for Your Presence,
And your guidance-
Lord Jesus-- Master

You are an everlasting Master
The One who carries us through this Life.

You are the source 
Of our love, the source of our health.

Let the weary traveler
Find rest in your care, 
A peace that surpasses all understanding.
