Praying for My Brother...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

       Praying for My Brother…


My brother came to me,

 desperate for prayer,

Filled with turmoil

 and despair.


When I reached out to him to

 begin to pray…

I just couldn’t find any

 words to say.


The Holy Spirit began tugging

 at my heart within...

Convicting me of holding

 on to a “secret sin.”


THIS SIN, God told me

I must first let go!

For this was eating

at my very soul...


My prayer life had been

 such a mess.

I soon repented..

And to God... I confessed.


I called out to Jesus’

precious name

Inviting him into my

 whole life to reign.


On bended knees before my Lord

 I began to bow...

My prayer was going to be

answered somehow!


The prayer request for my brother

  is going to be met...

For God has never

failed me YET!

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!
