§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Psalm 42:8 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer:  Take Apart A Poem.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Yahweh will command his loving kindness in the daytime. In the night his song shall be with me: a prayer to the God of my life.”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Did you ever “take a song apart” and really look at the way the words “work”?  This works well with songs that have quite a lot of rhyme in them.  Maybe by looking at the way the poet has used the words, we will be able to get the beauty of poetry more enjoyably.  We did this at the senior center this week, at our semi-monthly Poetic Expressions, the poetry club.  We were looking at the rhyming words and particularly enjoyed what I call rhythmic rhyming.  One of the rhymes was “ordaining” and “maintaining.”  Another was “beginning” and “winning.”  These just have a certain attractive style.

So, as we take apart a poem and notice the rhyme, maybe we are also getting the meaning a bit better.  Ordaining and maintaining come from the old hymn, “’We Gather Together’ … to ask the Lord’s blessing,” an old Dutch hymn often sung at Thanksgiving time.  Beginning and winning are also from this song – God has victory won even from the beginning:  winning.  Maybe I’ll remember this about God when this tune and these words come to me someday – because I have taken those words out and really considered them.

Lord, we just thank You for building into your children the ability to sing, to rhyme, to ponder meaning and beauty in poetry and song.  Let us have songs in our hearts daytime or night.  And let these heartfelt songs ornament others’ lives as joy in You; and when they see us in us (although not at night with prayer-songs in our beds!), may they look up to You, Lord, as the Author and great rhymer of our lives and the lives of those who struggle with LIFE.               
         
Topics:  Pray for joy in our hearts and that others will see it and choose LIFE because of the joy in our lives.
