Pray For Me???

Pray for Me???

Dad, you recently said that "you're praying for me."

But it's like you trying to say you're "feeling sorry for me."

It appears that at the time when we tend to disagree...

This is that time that you say you're praying for me.

I encourage people to pray, because we all can use.

This is an offer that I don't typically refuse.

Please use prayer time not as a weapon but a goal...

To really be there to encourage and build up another soul.

Let's seek the best in everything that we do.

Not to use for those who may disagree with you.

In our lives, God's word must be the final authority.

God's word in our life must be our hope and security.

Let's seek God's best for another in all that we do.

Maybe it is I who should be praying for you???

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!
