I Need to Pray
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Need To Pray...

Someone came to me in a

moment of despair.

Quite discouraged, he asked

for some prayer.

I didn't feel like praying

this particular day.

The way things were going...

I didn't want to pray.

There once was a time in life,

I felt God' s awesome power.

But lately, my spiritual life

has been going sour.

Praying for someone is what a Christian's

supposed to do.”

But I haven't been living the way

Christ wants me to.

I had accepted and rejected

God's unfailing grace.

By allowing things into my life,

Jesus was no longer in 1st place.

If I pray for anyone,

it really should be me.

The bondages need to be broken—

I need to be free!

As I focus on Christ and give him

all of my attention.

My prayer life will then be

in the right direction.

To you, Lord Jesus,

cleanse my life throughout.

Praying to YOU is what being a

Christian is all about!

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!
