PLEASE ATTEND

Please attend Lord to my need
I ask of Thee this day
Make a commitment of my heart
To not neglect to pray
But come to You in humbleness
And admission of my sin
And not hold back in unbelief
But gladly ask You in

I recognize my waywardness
How oft I've gone astray
How many times I put it off
To come to You and pray
And plugged away in my own strength
But fruitless it became
Never had the joy or peace
By trusting in Your name

But You have drawn me to You Lord
I feel it in my soul
The time for decision has arrived
I want to be made whole
So as simply as I can
I plant my faith based seed
Here in Your garden of prayer
I know you'll meet my need!

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
