A poem by one of our Asylum Seekers, Agnes.

Agnes is a regular attender at Sr. Margaret’s BSOL (Bible for Speakers of

Other Languages) class. The class have been studying the Lord’s Prayer,

and were asked to write their own versions of it for homework.

 

A word to my God.

 

Why can’t I overcome?

These are the questions I ask myself daily.

Even though times are hard,

In this difficult situation,

I have taken the decision to have confidence in You.

You are the same today and tomorrow,

You are faithful for you have never let me fall.

This is why I have never doubted You

You provide for my needs according to Your generosity.

You are my support, my refuge and my stronghold

Apart from You, I have no one else to call on

Even if everything is hard, I have decided to believe in Your word.

YawheJire, you will provide.

Glory to You for all eternity. Amen
