Praise The Lord & More (Acrostic)

This week's Acrostic Only Challenge featured eight words. I choose the words Praise the Lord, Love, and Hypocrisy.

Prostration
Renders
Atonement
Inviting
Sinners to
Enter

Trembling
Hands
Emptied

Lithe
Ovations
Rippling
Divinity

Losing all traces
Opining syllables
Vertically rising
Entice kisses

Honey dipped language
Yields consent
Promises receding
Oligarchy rules
Condemning dissidence
Rotting chambers
Insidious arguments
Silence meekly
Yearns

Wonderful! Love the power of the ending, "yearns". That's what the quest for communion with God is all about, isn't it?
