Shore Up


 Shore up my prayer life Lord 

And bring it up to snuff 

I know for sure that I haven't been

 Definitely praying enough

 The devil attempts to sidetrack 

My time alone with you

 And before I know it the day is gone

 And prayers left unprayed for too


 Time is of the essence here 

For we know that our days are numbered

 So many things to distract us 

And so many are encumbered 

The gospel still our source of hope 

Praise God for Jesus Christ

 Still He seeks to save the lost 

We're called to show that Light 


Shore up my prayer life Lord 

Don't let me escape the fact 

There are some people who will never get saved

 If our prayer life isn't in tact 

So give me a fresh glimpse of eternity 

Earth is but a vapour 

How I would love to see answered prayer

 In the lives of those I've prayed for!


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
