I Take My Refuge in Prayer
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I take my refuge in prayer

And strength in Him I find

I lean upon everlasting arms

None other are so kind

With a love so understanding

That knows me through and through

I take my refuge in prayer

It's what He's called me too


I take my refuge in prayer

When storms assail me so

I find true shelter in Him alone

None other could love me so

His Spirit comforting me

I rest in tender grace

I take my refuge in prayer

I seek my Master's face


I take my refuge in prayer

When grief attends my way

When loved one's die and leave me

I know He is the Way

His resurrection assuring

We'll meet again some yonder day

I take my refuge in prayer

There is no other way


I take my refuge in prayer

I praise You O my Lord

Not one request goes amiss

But You hear every word

If I ask in faith

According to Your will

I take my refuge in prayer

Knowing You hear me still

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
