Prayer for Unseen Friend
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Prayer Our Unseen Friend

Prayer takes residence in our hearts
By God’s Holy Spirit
Planted by the grace of God
Wise are they who hear it

Pray without ceasing says our Paul
He'd be the one to know it
With all the activity in his life
His prayer life really showed it

Happy is the man who prays
For God is with us still
He's aware of your life's circumstances
He's pleased when you pray in His will

Prayers unuttered but deeply felt
Touch the heart of God
Who records every tear in a bottle
Every gift from above it is good

Don't let life drive you crazy
And lead you round a bend
But look at life as a blessing from God
With the addition of prayer as friend

So pray on brother pray on
There's adventure still to be had
The rejoicing of answered prayer in your life
Would make anyone glad

So discipline yourself to pray
Enjoy your time spent there
Nothing pleases our Lord as much
As the time we spend in 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
