Prayer To The Lord

Tuesday, 21 October 2008 / Published in Poetry / 2,560 views

Krpakara dasa: My dear Lord Acyuta O infallible One, who are the knower of everything, please hear my prayer.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Give me strength to stay my course, as you are Baladeva the reservoir of all strength.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Give me hope when all around and within me is without You, as you are Madhusudhana the killer of the demons of doubt.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Protect me from the wicked embrace of Maya, as you protected Arjuna on the battlefield of Kuruksetra.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Help me become attached to the process of devotional service as You, in Your form of Lord Caitanya, are Patita Pavana the deliverer of the most fallen.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Take away my false pride and give me shelter at your lotus feet, which are the shelter of the whole cosmic manifestation.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

Let me be Your servant, and servant of your servants, because I want no other shelter than You.
This is my prayer to you O my Lord
This is my prayer to you O my Lord

NB: Actually we should never ask the Lord for anything, neither should we disturb the Lord with our day to day worries, but should be always thinking how we can glorify the Lord and please the Lord’s senses in so many varied ways. But sometimes a devotee, who is experiencing the pains of material existence due to the stubbon mind and voracious senses, may approach the Lord or His pure devotee for solace and shelter. In such an approach one immediately remembers the Lord, and again feels great happiness and shelter at the Lords lotus feet.

When Will It Be

When will it be when I surrender to He
when will I see to forget about me

When will it be I lose such desire
when will it see it burns like a fire

When will it be I live for His pleasure
when will I see this is true treasure

When will it be when I surrender to He
when will I see to forget about me
