New Dawn

New Dawn

I pray here on my own all alone

I’m praying for peace for us all

I’m praying for guidance please lend a hand

but as I listen in meditation deep

my thoughts are drowning the words that I seek

Help me to hear with Samuel's ear

I sense you draw near as we speak

a tear starts to fall I know you're hearing my call

and can see all my pain as I weep


The tears that are falling are bleeding from my heart

help us to understand

and awake in the morn with a faith that’s reborn

To a wonderful bright ‘New Dawn’.

Hi V, thank you for your touching comment.

I have served Spiritualist church's all over the South East of England and would often open the service with this prayer.

After I first recited it, a few of the congregation came up to me at the end of the service to ask if they could have a copy to use for their own prayers. I was only too pleased to oblige.

I think this was one of the first pieces of my poetry that I could always remember and recite.


I still use this invocation to this day.

Thanks to Nigel and Leon and Moon girl for your little flowers of appreciation.

It is indeed a new dawn here in Albion.
The sun is up, the clouds have dissipated and the temperature is rising. I have never had such a deep tan in April before.

It was 110 degrees in our courtyard yesterday!

Global warming.... What Global warming?

Thank you for this poem Po. Much needed. In such disappointment, your words give hope of a new day/dawn/start/strength.

Prayers are but lethal weapons bestowed upon us by God.

Keep praying, let the tears roll when the mind and heart is empty, just sleep, God will then pour inspirational words. Follow your good Lord.

Peace n love always!!!
