Prayer Proves

Prayer Proves

Prayer proves our dependence on God
And is delightful to the Lord
For it gives glory and honor as to who God is
And affirmation to faith in His Word
For God's Word is the sure gateway
To the Salvation of a soul
Where our heart's are stirred by the Holy Spirit
To recognize the lover of our soul

We are told to pray without ceasing
That's just how important prayer is
For when we keep our minds upon God
Our stresses know lessenings bliss
Prayers of praise share their offerings
For our thankfulness unto the Lord
Who awakes us each morning faithfully
And guides us again by His Word

I'm thankful that I've learned to pray Lord
And have acknowledged you as the Friend
That sticketh closer than any brother
Your companionship is without end
Your grace leads us daily in service
As to that You are near we're aware
Now part and parcel of my armour of faith
Is my time spent with You Lord in prayer!

Praise God You were merciful to this 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
