How Much Longer Lord?
Like a fortress unprotected,
Like a knight without a shield,
We stand amidst the obfuscations,
Awaiting a future yet revealed.
So many dates have been projected,
Numerous signs have passed us by,
Yet still we gather in stark perplexity,
Trying to understand the reasons “Why?”
As vulnerable as the foliage,
In the autumn awaiting death,
Like a perforated rose,
We grasp longingly for our breath.
How much longer must we occupy,
Until the Rapture is finally unfurled?
Our strength is rapidly waning,
While we remain mired in this world.
Lord, as we anticipate our departure,
Our dispositions become frayed and bare,
Please don’t tarry a moment longer,
Every second we are worse for wear.
Standing fully-clothed, but naked,
Solemn castles without our moats,
Like the leaves against the elements,
We feel the daggers at our throats.
We know we are in the Season,
But that doesn’t stem our collective desires,
We yearn to immediately be in Heaven,
Away from the conflagration of mortal fires.
We have endured so very long,
Our nerves are wracked, withered, and battered,
Exactly how much longer must we navigate,
These tumultuous seas with our sails so tattered?
Please, Lord, we pray with fervent accord,
Submitting a final supplication to be heard,
Although we are confused and utterly confounded,
Our longing for You has not been deterred.
We will wait for Your Perfect Timing,
Trusting our fates to Your Godly attention,
Every breath we take is in Your Hands,
But please, Lord, HASTEN THE HOUR OF OUR ASCENSION.
Obviously Brethren, I am truly at the end of my patience. As much as I speak about perseverance IN this world, all I pray about is immediate severance FROM this world.
Come Lord Jesus, and come NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your humble and lowly servant,

Indeed, how long oh Lord?!
We are lost without You. We desire to be in Your eternal presence. We long for Your return. But most of all, to know You as our Bridegroom!
Only then shall we know You personally and intimately. We covet a relationship with You Lord. An experience that no angel has had, nor ever will! Indeed grant us all the patience to hold on to the very end.
Let the labors of our waiting and watching be not in vain Lord. Nor will You allow this generation to pass away without the claiming of You’re Bride, Your Church, Your Saints!
Lifting up Israel to our Father God’s heart, may He be merciful to His chosen people even in the smallest of ways!
