Lord Help Me Learn

Lord Help Me Learn

Lord help me learn to pray again
Like I prayed before
When I came to know You Lord
How that You were the Door
And when I entered in by faith
And knew You saved my soul
And life became a whole new way
And I submitted to Your control

Prayer became the ingredient
That set me on a course
Kept me in fine fellowship
To own Your worthy cause
And with a passion for lost souls
I sought Your Word to share
And fortified that effort with
A time with You in prayer

There's urgency to start again
The time with You to pray
Lord make it top priority
At the beginning of each day
May my heart be filled with love
Such as You have for me
And press on with relentless fashion
And pray more faithfully

I pray dear Lord magnify
The plight of all men lost
Who have an eternal Hell awaiting
At the rejection of the Cross
And make my prayer a fervent one
To reach some soul today
To tell them of the Hope of all Ages
This dear Lord I 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
