Lord Help Me To Pray

Lord help me to pray more this year
Than I have ever prayed before
Give me a fresh vision for the lost
And a passion to share with them more
Of the great plan of Your Salvation
Hallelujah for the Lamb
Praise God for that Saviour who died for our sin
But hallelujah He rose again...

In this world darkened by sin
God has given a light
There's a blessed hope in a Saviour
And His name is Jesus Christ
And whomsoever shall call upon that name
Hallelujah He shall be saved
And granted full forgiveness for his sin
And victory over the grave!

There's a real refreshing in my soul
When I seek to please the Lord
For He is now the chief delight of my life
And I love...I just love the Word
For the preaching of the Cross unto them that perish is foolishness
But unto us who believe it is the power of God
For first I pray and I trust... then I praise and I trust
Praise God...hallelujah!... there's nothing like the Word!!!


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
