OUR PEOPLE Sharing some thoughts
A POEM from parishioner Glen Taylor
In the garden of Gethsemane,
Upon that fateful day,
Our lord bade his disciples
To simply, “Watch and pray.”
Alone within the olive grove,
At the closing of that day,
He begged his heavenly father
To take the cup away.
“Yet not my will, but thine be done,”
Was his anguished prayer,
As in his human form he feared
The pain which he would bear.
So many folk, within this world,
Lie in Gethsemane.
Alone, afraid and suffering.
They simply, “Watch and pray.”
Dear Lord above give us the strength
To share, with them, their pain,
And by their side, hold out our hand,
And with them, “Watch and pray.”
And when I reach my olive grove,
Grant, Lord, that I will find
Your eyes on mine, your hands outstretched,
To, with me, “Watch and pray.”

THE WORDS OF THIS SONG are the thoughts of my life, my daily prayers, my family and my friends.
It gives me great happiness and contentment to be able to give everything to God in prayer.
