I Prayed a Spirit Led Prayer Today
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Just a thinking!I 


I prayed a Spirit led prayer today
I know that it was heard
The very presence of God was felt
Of that I am assured
I cannot describe what came over me
And brought me to my knees
But I was very aware He was there
"Someone special" if you please

I left that prayer for many a year
It came up a time or two
"Remember that prayer you prayed that day"
Will it's reality come into view?
Then one day unexpectedly
I received news from afar
The person for whom I had prayed
His life had suddenly expired

Swiftly I brought to my Father's attention
"Remember the prayer that I prayed?"
Now he is gone little did I know
Your plan was an ...early grave!
So please dear Lord ..I'm asking You please
If there's a remote possibility
If that pray has been possibly answered
Reveal it one day unto me

The funeral day came the service was ending
With the thought of The prayer that I prayed
Then out of the audience a man came towards me
Shared about the man in the grave
Praise God I thought inwardly and rejoiced silently
This is my answer to prayer
After all of these years and wondering how
God honored His Spirit led prayer!

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
