Faithful Prayer

The words of this poem are inspired from some of my prayers for family, friends, and acquaintances here on WordPress.   Being a prayer warrior is an important element of my faith and witness.

From Psalm 86:5-6:  “For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you.  Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication.

Praying for others through God’s love . . .

 

Praying with patience and care

Asking God with nothing to spare

 

Witnessing a son’s love for his father

Time spent together, never a bother

 

Bringing empathy and care to a young boy

Cancer rages, but medical staff deploys

 

Waiting for prodigal children to return

Inviting God, His lessons will be learned

 

Watching a lost mother, now showing love

Children feeling God’s mercy, from above

 

Allowing time to heal a brother’s relationship

Now picking up the phone, full of friendship

 

Battling health problems for years and years

Faithfulness and hope carry on, without fear

 

Nurturing a relationship, despite great distance

Love flourishes, with God’s constant assistance

 

Finding life no longer survives through a bottle

Weekly AA meetings turn up a man’s throttle

 

Moving to a new city, with its many challenges

A new job arrives, life settles and balances

 

Feeling empty loneliness, each and every day

A woman discovers love, with so much to say

 

Revealing unconditional love toward a spouse

Love carries on, refilling this blessed house

 

Sacrificing His Son for our sinful ways

God offers Jesus, with Salvation today

 

Praying for others through God’s love . . .
