Prayer Will See God Move


You’ve sought for love never to cease

You’ve sought the world for fame

Yet God alone has brought you peace

When Jesus bore your shame


So grateful that you see the light

So glad you understand

You’ve gladly taken up life’s fight

Within your Saviour’s hand


By faith your joy in Christ is found

Your laughter’s sweet and loud

In church you stand on hallowed ground

But not to please the crowd


You see the burdens and the tears

You see the lack of grace

You see the weak consumed with fears

And seek The Father’s face


You see the wrongs the deeds not right

Confusion here and there

Knowing that all is in God’s sight

You kneel in silent prayer


Your heart is given to The Lord

The foe is held at bay

Within your hand belongs the sword

Of He to whom you pray


Your hope is in God’s Lamb and Son

Your faith stands every test

You live to see God’s will is done

To enter Heaven’s rest


You’re wrapped up in the arms of Grace

In prayer you’ve seen God move

Knowing one day you’ll see His face

You’ve nothing more to prove.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
