Power of Prayer
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Power of Prayer


When heartfelt praise ascend on high

When prayer reaches God’s ears

Sincerity draws Heaven nigh

To dry up countless tears


When though life’s storms we find no peace

When shadows veil one’s goal

Honouring God brings swift release

With healing to the soul


When tongues turn cruel when tempers soar

Where nowhere is to hide

A prayer will open wide a door

For God to turn the tide


When man and wife’s relation’s sour

When families fall apart

Prayer releases awesome power

For love again to start


Prayer can close the devil’s gate

Will close hell’s gaping jaws

Will conquer pain will vanquish hate

And make salvation yours


Prayer will loose a prisoner bound

Will change both time and space

Will show lost souls where true life’s found

And sinners saving grace


Prayer is God’s gift to man and bride

The way to reach The King

The way upon The Wind to ride

Where angels dance and sing


Prayer is the boat to Heaven’s shore

To pastures rich and green

To peace to joy forever more

Where treasures lie unseen…..

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.
