Rousing rays rise, drill through frowning

clouds. An orb, unused to haste, crawls

like waking sun, haloed with golden glow;

drills through a dark mass, full of blaze

no eye can reach.

It looks right, the sight; smells nice,

the fragrance of spring roses, against

choking stench of blood clots—the stain

of shame, cultured into civilization's

pride. Peace unfurls while darkness flees,

dawn adorns, feting an end of gloom!

Should God turn back from the crimson—

the eternal covenant with his people

through Jesus Christ? What would be left

of earth but a rain of rage? Who can stand

God's anger boil over: clay or rock?

I pledged to pry the times: We're at the gate

of mercy seat; the end apportioned  to scourge.

I jerked: Lord, steer footfalls to the throne

of grace, to the mercy seat. Stir fervent pleas

for mercy and help. Prick up the ears to hear,

your hand to bridle the boiling bile as the blood

of eternal redemption cries for a release,

for a restoration of your righteousness upon us.p

Show mercy, Lord, show mercy, for your wrath

burns up the land. More than double our sins!

Who can stand a moment longer? Remember!

Remember the eternal covenant in the blood Jesus!

God bless you, Malva,

Thank you. We've had it so rough and tough to the point of wondering: Where's our God? But we grip the wings of faith and grace, looking up each day for mercy to dew down and drown the drought. Our sins are many, no doubt,  but His grace is more. We're getting to the end; His righteousness will be our song. Not far from now! Not far!

Hab 3:2 GNT O LORD, I have heard of what You have done, and I am filled with awe. Now do again in our times the great deeds You used to do. Be merciful, even when You are angry.

Ps 111:5 NIV He remembers His covenant forever.

Lord God, we pray for mercy in the Name of Jesus Christ. We pray for Nigeria. We pray for this world. Please remember Your covenant of grace. Thank You, God, amen.
