An abiding trust in God, just what we need
to bury selfish doubt in its barren tract;
prayer - the planting and compost for hope's seed.

A simple plea, "Help me, God!" starts the contact
between us and God whose angels stand close by
braced to intervene, buttressing every act.

To every whisper, answers He does supply.
If we get it - our Father knows what is best -
we’ll say, “Thank You, God!” his will to glorify.

All throughout the day, calm words of praise and quest
for guidance from Him, “What should I say and do?”
will honor Him, when we confess, "God has blessed."

Prayer - conversation between God and you,
heart-felt fellowship that never says, “Adieu”.

Prayer is our connection to our loving God. God has truly blessed us. Nice poem.

I was blessed by your poem. Lately, my words to God have not been real calm; but He has blessed anyway. Sometimes the cry is just HELP! What a wonderful blessing that He NEVER says Adieu!

About the Poet
Growing older with some pains and discomfort, graying hair, glasses, partial plate and hearing aids but with complete assurance of my eternal domain. Saved by choice by Gods free grace by Jesus life, death and resurrection. Born and bred in the Bluegrass State for 24 years, I crossed the Ohio River and became a Hoosier forever thereafter until that time God calls me to my heavenly home. Christian for fifty-five plus years. Church musician and SS teacher for most all of my Wednesdays and Sundays. Public school teacher for thirty-six school terms; retired with a class now of three grandchildren off and on during the week. Wife for half my life to the same superman. Mama to two unique sons. Mother-in-law to a fine daughter; Nana to one darling girl and two handsome guys. God has blessed me abundantly; thank you, Father. God quiets my hackles; God quickens my heart; God quells my hunger. Blessed be His holy name.
