You Can Have a Prayer Meeting

You Can Have a Prayer Meeting

You can have a prayer meeting
With God Himself today
Find yourself a quiet spot
And pray.. .pray....pray
Don't let Satan hinder you
In this enterprise
With a proper fear of God
My friend you will be wise

Bring your burdens to the Lord
Bring them every one
Don't worry...God won't be surprised
He knows their total sum
And by the cross sin's debt was paid
Their cost was not diminished
But by the precious blood Of Christ
It's sacrifice was finished

So pray on brother pray on
Don't leave that sacred spot
But worship Him who gave Himself
To remove sin's every blot
And transformation will take place
Of this I'll guarantee
For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord
He will be free indeed!

The worth of it then realised
Prayer turns into thanksgiving
And life becomes more meaningful
With Christ you're really living
So come apart and rest awhile
Grab a moment in this day
And truly turn your heart to God
And pray!... pray!... pray!

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
