   A House of Earnest Prayer.....(2)

In Christ we build but not alone

But God’s hand so real

Placing on bricks on precious stone

Salvation’s golden seal


Though bricks and mortar cannot last

In time but dust we’ll see

Unlike god praises in the past

Let’s build to always be


We’ll build a shadow of life’s dawn

An echo of love’s song

Whispers in faith, of hope reborn

To where we’ll soon belong


The Groom is faithful to His bride

Each day with blessings new

Forever willing to provide

Certain to see us through


Lets serve in Christ as righteous tools

Stand firm with willing hand

Although to some we seem as fools

They’ll come to understand


By grace with gifts we’ve talents too

Through Christ we’re richly blessed

So that the world may come to view

And join life’s holy quest


Let’s walk with Christ the extra mile

Lets give till feeling pain

Lets show the world a loving smile

Lets see her born again


Our house will stand when all else falls

Through storms through blasts of war

With praise and worship as it’s walls

With Christ Life’s living Door.....

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.
