Pray in Deed? ( Jas. 2:26)

 

I’ll pray about your needs my friend

We’ll seek The Father’s face

By faith your troubles soon to end

Returning peace and grace

 

Perhaps the church will fast a while

Seek guidance night and day

That soon by grace again you’ll smile

Along The Narrow Way

 

Surely we’ll seek for Truth and Light

God’s Lamp and Morning Dew

For strength to stand to fight the fight

That still yet bothers you

 

We’ll watch and pray for all we’re worth

Raise eyes in faith above

That God will move Heaven and earth

Showing His awesome love

 

Worry no more, have faith in prayer

Recall the saints before

Stand firm in faith with those who care

That victory will be sure

 

God hears your words, each heartfelt song

Trust His promises made

Heaven will guide where hopes belong

Though hearts begin to fade

 

Is prayer enough, will words suffice?

Will such evoke God’s will?

Will well wishes pay the price?

Where loves sweet deeds lie still

 

Did Jesus only come to speak?

Were not Love’s deeds to see?

Did Christ not heal the sick and weak?

And die man’s soul to free.....

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.
