The Power of Prayer There is real
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


There is real power in prayer
To that I can attest
It's how I came close to God
And obtained His righteousness
Prayer became the channel
Through which I was blessed
And found a friend in Jesus Christ
Who died for me no less

I drew nigh unto God
And He drew nigh to me
And led me by the Holy Spirit
To find Him... DEITY!
Precious were those hours of prayer
When I talked to Him
And laid my failings on the line
And dealt with all my sin

Dynamite you might well say
For sin received a blast
Past... Present... And future sin
They were put in the past
And glory came to this heart
And filled it to the brim
Praise and thanksgiving to the Master
As now He dwelt within

Prayer you still adorn me
I feel your warm embrace
And look continually forward to
Your working out of grace
For testimonies bare the news
Of sinner's that have been saved
Yes for sure... there's power in prayer
It can raise you from the grave!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
