The Gospel Story
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


I prayed a prayer to witness,
To a soul today,
And went about my business,
Just as I do always.

And in the time appointed,
By God who birthed that prayer,
I found myself soon conscious of,
A sense of answered prayer.

A prompting by the Spirit,
A reminder to my soul,
This is the one to witness too,
A message from Mission Control.

At first I thought, this one?
Is this the person Lord?
Then place the plan You have for them,
And help me share Your Word.

Bring the conversation around,
To things about Your Son,
I know You do it easily, Lord
Your the Professional One.

Before I know it, it's happening
It's almost automatic,
The Gospel message is being shared,
By a sometime's called religious fanatic.

O how I love to share it,
God has given it top priority,
A more blessed story could never be told,
Then that blessed Gospel story.

Another answered prayer I've witnessed,
God again, proved Himself True,
He's brought His Word, into life's market place
Maybe it's coming to you.

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
