Invite Prayer

Invite Prayer

Invite prayer into your life
Make it a constant friend
Spend some closet time together
And most of your worries will end
We are told to pray without ceasing
But how far we fall short of it
It must become a discipline to pray
If we're to enjoy the benefits of it...

For there's no joy like answered prayer
That will stir our soul's within
Bringing us immediately to offer praise
To the One who delivers from sin
Talk about a hallelujah!
It is music to the ears
To know the God of answered prayer
And the Drier of our tears..

Prayer brings us to that sacred place
A quiet time with God
For fresh reflection of our lives
And our adherence to His Word
We ought...we ought...always to pray
It's a resource most readily at hand
Today let's begin...to pray again
And honor our Lord's command!

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
