Bequest of Penitence

It seemed unusual when l first thought of

sorrow and repentance…

As a gift.

We know we ought

To bow.

To pray.

To lift our souls in petition to the LORD.

Often.

 

We pray for

grace.

peace.

mercy.

contentment.

help.

forgiveness.

In these, sorrow and repentance are

vaguely comprised.

 

Depend on the Creator;

Being dependent, we are made strong.

Presuming that we can be sorry,

Presuming that we can repent ourselves:

We

Presume.

That we can save ourselves.

 

Depend on God the Father,

His

Spirit,

Jesus Christ,

The Messiah.

For sorrow and repentance.
