Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

††††††† ††Fasting prayer

Carry me through Lord carry me through

Flood me with Your promised Dew

Allow Your Flame burn deep within

Purge this child of filthy sin

Carry me through Lord carry me through

Nothingís achieved apart from You

To live and walk lifeís one true Way

Your help my God I seek each day

Carry me through Lord carry me through

Melt me, mould me, make me new

Self desire I long to give

Please bless my soul that I may live

Carry me through Lord carry me through

That I may join Your chosen few

Though Satan seeks to steal lifeís crown

Let faith within me cast him down

Carry me through Lord carry me through

I plead to stand in Jesus true

Satan wily would lead astray

Give strength my God to fast and pray

Carry me through Lord carry me through

My very will I give to You

Equip this child with sword and shield

Then lead me on the battlefield

Carry me through Lord carry me through

Your holy standardís plain in view

Let deep within shine righteous Light

Your Holy Ghost throughout the fight

Almost through Lord almost through

Living for Christ Iím born anew

Though narrow the road, small the door

Iíve lifeís reward forever more.....

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.
