True peace is a feeling that many people rarely are able to feel. In my experience, Jesus Christ has been that peace. This is my prayer for the times that I lose touch with the Holy Spirit and long for it again.

Prince of Peace

Oh Prince of Peace,
Please, show yourself.
Please, come to me,
There is no one else

The Peace you bring,
The way you Love-
Transcends all understanding
You alone are enough

I long to feel
Your gentle embrace,
And, I know you're real-
Though I haven't seen Your face

You've made me know
Just how important I am,
You've showed when I am low,
The power of the lamb

You hold me close-
You make me feel warm,
You're what heals me most
When I'm tired and worn
 

It's been so long
Since I last felt you,
It feels so wrong-
And I don't know what to do

Deep down inside
This feeling burns,
I swallow my pride
And, my heart still yearns

I feel so distant-
So far away,
I'm so resistant
To go on another day

In my head
I know you're there,
When I go to bed
I say a prayer

I know that each step
Each breath I take,
Each time I've wept
And every move I make

Is all a part
Of your great plan,
As you change my heart
And make me into a man.

But the doesn't change
The way I feel,
Still estranged
My heart unsealed

I feel so weak
In the corner I cry,
In need of peace
But no strength to try

To find you where
My heart here breaks,
I'm still so scared
I hesitate-

I don't quite possess
The strength to move,
And I confess
I have everything to lose

So, now I fall-
I'm shouting out,
To hear your call
And lose my doubt

Come down from high
To find me low,
Show me clear skies-
Don't let me go

I am weak
And I feel so lost,
So, Prince of Peace,
Help me, to carry my cross.
