Prayer Power
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Prayer Power

Too many boast of what they can

Though fruit they rarely bear

To be in Christ, a mighty man

Be first a child of prayer

The strong pray oft without a pause

For hours on bended knee

Seeking to open many doors

Where Jesus has the key

Though oft itís hard earnest to pray

Yet press for all youíre worth

Until the victory comes your way

Or till youíve given birth

First then; we know in Christ weíre strong

Satan will know it too

When on your knees you sing your song

Heíll flee away from you

Praying can set the captive free

The devil knows to well

The weakest saint on bended knee

Can send him back to hell

Whether we kneel or standing tall

Best pray with humble heart

Itís God alone who brings to fall

Who makes the waters part

So when in life we see a need

And when on God we call

Our risen Lord will intercede

To bring the devilís fall

True prayer can give us swift release

Power; to stand each day

It brings the faithful inner peace

Thank God that we can pray.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
