Try Prayer

Try Prayer

You've tried all kinds of scenarios that you thought would bring you peace
And found that it was an empty well and gave you no relief
Yet conditioned by your habitual pattern still you go on every day
And when evening comes and you meditate the pain won't go away

Try prayer.........

There's a healing balm in Gilead there's a great physician here
Who knows what you've been struggling with and He knows your every fear
In your darkest night you can find a light for the Lord is always near
When all else that you have tried has failed.......try prayer

There's an everlasting well of water that's available today
Are you burdened down with a thirsty soul then come to know the way
There's a Hallelujah song awaiting that only you can sing
Won't you put your trust in Christ today and accept His offering.  .try prayer

Hey I know the fact of this I've  tasted and I've found
When you're living a life that's topsy turvy He can turn it right around
Don't put off for another day missing out on the treasure there
Forgive for interrupting here but please..please...please ..try prayer!!!!!

"God be merciful to me a sinner!"

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
