A cry, Behold the Lamb: Poem

Posted by James Hahn on

John 1:29-34

Cain, the jealous sower,
Spills first the blood of man.
Abel, the innocent shepherd,
A cry, Behold the lamb.

Abram withholds nothing,
An angel stays his hand.
God will provide the sacrifice.
A cry, Behold the lamb.

Pharaoh's heart is hardened,
Mercy ends in the land.
The angel passes over,
A cry, Behold the lamb.

John by waters edge,
Many baptized by his hand.
A dove descends upon the Christ,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.

The Heavens all cry out,
Here is the Son of Man.
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.

Another Christ at altar,
Host and chalice in his hand,
With trembling voice and body,
A cry, Behold the Lamb.

How to get better at prayer.
  1. Set a prayer appointment - Set a time on your calendar each day to meet and speak with God.
  2. Slowly increase your prayer time. - Don't jump in with an hour right from the get-go.  Build up your "tolerance" so to speak.
  3. Commit - to praying and slowly increasing your prayer time for 30 days.  Mark off the days on your calendar.  If you miss a day, jump right back in, don't give up.
  4. Pray - praying is talking to God, it's spending time with your attention focused on Him.  I enjoy spending time with my children regardless of their level of development.  God is the same way.  Spend time praying as best you can.  Use formal prayers if you want or simply speak in conversation.  Don't forget to listen
