We Need Prayer in America Today!

We Need Prayer In America Today!

There’s a big problem in America today!

Many people don’t take time to pray.


Our children are told prayer violates “the rules.”

As God himself isn’t allowed in the schools.


Even in churches, prayer seems to be of the past.

As many in Church, want a service that’s FAST!


Talking with God seems to get little attention.

Many are looking for some sense of direction.


People want answers now…  They don’t want to wait!

As many grow impatient, and not a minute too late!


We should get on our knees before God almighty!

I don’t care if you’re ten years old, or ninety!


God can do much more than you can think of!

His awesome love, is more

than one can speak of!


Won’t you trust him?  And give to him your concerns?

Why not now?  Before your life takes

 an “unexpected turn?”


Jesus will listen to whatever you’ll say to him!

He patiently waits for you to pray to him.


Now’s the time...  Christ extends

  an invitation!

Let’s seek prayer, all across this great nation!

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!
