I Need to Pray for Others!

I Need to Pray for Others!


Someone came to me,

 wanting some prayer.

He was filled with trouble and despair.


When I reached out to him to

 began to pray…

I just couldn’t find any words to say.


The Holy Spirit began tugging

 at my heart within.

Convicting me of holding

 on to a “secret sin.”


THIS SIN, God told me

I must first let go,

For this was eating

at my very soul.


My prayer life had been

 such a mess.

I soon repented, and to God I confessed,


I called out to Jesus’

precious name

Inviting him into my

 whole life to reign.


On bended knees before my Lord

 I humbly bowed!

My prayer was going to be answered somehow!


This prayer request for this person

  is going to be met!

For God has never

failed me YET!

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!
