Sweet Jesus

As I come into prayer

I breathe in your presence

The scent of perfume

As frankincense and myrrh

I drink in your complete wonder

I am awestruck by you

I sense I am one with you

You in me and I in you

And we are one with the Father

I feel as though I am with you

At the right hand of the Father

Where you are making intercession

For the needs of those you have entrusted to my care

I lay them at your feet

They are like crushed rose pedals

You then infuse new life into them

Recreating a thing of beauty

No longer crushed but whole

Your sweet essence emanating

Through the flower of their lives

And they are restored to fullness of life
