When I Went to Pray...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Other Poems by James Pemberton

When I went To Pray...
Something happened
when I went to pray
There was "something"
that was "in my way.:
I went to call on Jesus' holy name.
But things didn't
 "seem quite the same."
I felt that somehow, I had let the
 Holy Spirit down
His presence in my prayer was
 nowhere to be found.
It must have been that
sin I let "creep in."
I needed to be cleansed
before praying again.
Everything holding me down
 must get out.
For God's presence... 
I don't want to be without!
So to you dear Jesus...  I confess
my every sin now.
And to you I repent and
humbly bow.
May my prayers be renewed by the
 cleansing of your word.
And may your voice in my life...
 Once again be heard!

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!
