The Uniqueness Of Prayer

God has blessed us with the means
To communicate with our Creator
We have the capicity to know Him
By coming to know the Saviour
For as it is written in the Word
I and my Father are one
By the wonderful uniqueness of prayer
Faith's journey is begun

No man cometh unto the Son
Unless he's drawn by the Father
The Spirit knows our innermost being
He searches the heart's far deeper
And when our spirit is so moved
To seek to know our God
Here begins the uniqueness of prayer
To cry out to Him as we should

God be merciful to me a sinner
Sure shows a responsive heart
When we seek to know the Lord
Then Heaven will do its part
Repentance as to our sin being critical
Turn ye why will you die
Call upon that name of Jesus
And God will surely draw nigh

Praise God for the uniqueness of prayer
I can come to the throne of grace
And bring forth there all my petitions
That are on my daily plate
And if my heart is free from sin
Not tainted with iniquity
I shall have the things requested
If they are in God's will for me

Help me Lord to draw nigh
And make it a discipline
To daily have a time with you
And help me in my praying
To praise You first for who You are
And for what You have done for me
For it was through the uniqueness of prayer
By Your Spirit I came to Thee!

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

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
