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 son’s lasting love for his Dad

Time spent together, making both glad


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 new demands

New job arrives, life settles in God’s hands


Feeling empty loneliness, each and every day

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 . . .
