Satan Doesn't Want You to Pray!

Satan Doesn't Want You to Pray!

Satan wants to stop your prayer!
How he does it?  He doesn't care!

He doesn't want any prayer to be effective!
Even if it comes from "God's elective!"

He wants to throw every distraction your way.
He'll try anything to discourage how you pray!

He'll throw garbage of all different kinds!
He doesn't want a prayer life to be on your mind!

He'd rather you talk to someone about your problem.
Rather than praying to God
 to help solve them!

Jesus is waiting to a one on one conversation!
And extends to you a heavenly invitation!

Won't you take the time to talk to him this hour?
And experience prayer's life-changing power!

Praying to Jesus is the best thing that you can do!
During the trials of life, it'll help
 to see you through!

Won't you come to the Lord and hear
 the words spoken?
And allow to keep your heart
 tender and broken!

When you pray to God, things
won't be the same!
You'll find what you need!
 It's all in Jesus' name!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
