Incongruence

I must live
As I pray
All else is vainglory

I know the prayer
With the thys
And the trespasses
I pray for my daily bread

Whether will or kingdom
Prayed thys too often lived as mys
Misaligned self-centeredness
Prayer turned inward isn’t

Wanting forgiveness
Not as I forgive
That price is quite high
I stumble over trespasses

Deluded by presumed association
Narcissistically relative and comparative
Forgoing personal responsibility
There is no I in our

Nathaniel had no duplicity
Jesus could see that
I suppose he also sees
My scant congruency

So to avoid vainglory
As I pray
So must I live

    “So to avoid vainglory
    As I pray
    So must I live”

    Tim these few words are the sum and the summary of life; of the human endeavor. {Isaiah 43: 7 &21}
    We live to pray, and pray to live with HIM for eternity. Amen

    Continued Blessings my friend,
    Patrick
