62. Matthew 21:22

struggling with this pain
each and everyday
some days are worse than the others
in a weird sort of way

sometimes I do feel
a few minutes totally pain-free
i can't help but wonder
if that's a preview of what's to be

a spasm here, a sharp pain there
sometimes a tight grip in my leg
can't stand, can't walk
Take this pain away, O Lord, I beg

it makes me sad, I feel bad
to be a slave of  pain relievers
a rest from this, a pain-free life, 
my heart's desire, my fervent prayer.

my prayer, In Jesus' name, 
Heavenly Father, I ask this
"whatsoever ye ask in prayer
 believing ye shall receive"
