Heart Cry

tears are prayers

Dear reader: This piece is my gift to be used in the healing of the abused.

Touch my wounded heart, oh God

Let me feel Your healing power

I’m hurting inside, oh God

Hear my cry to You right now


The past I cannot forget

It tortures me every day and night

I can’t sleep, oh God

How can I defeat the accusing voices?


Tears have been my food day and night

Feeling like a failure I am

My mind knows the truth of who I am

My heart feels so ugly inside


My blessed child I feel your tears

I never abandoned you

Take My hand in your mind

Let Me heal you within


Father, take this smoldering anger away from me

I can carry this hate no more

Let Your love flow into me

I’m angry at You and my abuser


My beloved child I hear your soul

Waves of heartache come over you

I don’t expect you to understand

I was with you when you were abused


I tried to get your abuser to listen

To not hurt you in any way

The abuser’s heart was hardened to Me

I couldn’t get through their wall of rage


Know this to be true

I have always loved you

My Son gave His life for you

That inside you could be healed


Father, I still don’t understand

Who am I to be worthy of Your love?

I feel so ugly inside

There is nothing beautiful about me


My sweet child you’re not the lies you’ve been told

Feel and know how beautiful you are

You’re  the apple of My eye

You’re fearfully and wonderfully made


Thank you, Father, for loving me

Wounded, broken as I am

I feel Your healing touch right now

You have heard the heart cry of my soul


I feel and know I’m beautiful to You

Help me see how beautiful I am

I give You all my anger, oh God

Make of me a new creation


My dear child I hear your prayer

Know I’m always there

I’m only a heart cry away

Trust Me every day

I’ll be with you all the way

I’ll be with you all the way

About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. Good psalm – echoes several others too

    • Very good, Chris! You noticed some of the thoughts in the piece comes from a series of Psalms. I have read this beautiful and spiritual book from the Bible many times. What did the piece say to you personally?
