If you are fearful about witnessing
Leave it with the Spirit
Pray that He would give you words
And those who hear might hear it
Remember God's Word is powerful
It's your job just to share it
It will do its work in heart's
Your job... just declare it!

Prayer for a burden for souls
There's plenty all around you
Hone in on the ones to which you are led
The results may astound you
We are just instruments
That God has chosen to use
Live your life for the Master
And you will never lose

So take a trial test today
Cover it with prayer
Lord led me to a needy soul
I really wish to share
And then wait for opportunity
For surely it will come
You may be the means by which
A person finds the Son

Add this practice to your plate
Now in your daily living
It will bring you cause to praise
And give to God thanks giving
For He who winneth souls is wise
Be a wisdom seeker
And yes there is one other thing
You are your brother's keeper!

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
