God Remembers Prayers

“Now how are you today my friend?

I heard you took a fall

I had an hour or so to spend

And thought I’d make this call

 

I’d like to fix you up a meal

Perhaps a little tea

I know exactly how you feel

And all you’ve done for me

 

Remember when I almost died?

It seems like yesterday

How much you cared how much you cried

Whilst kneeling there to pray

 

How come you too are sick my friend?

I know you serve your God

You said on Him you could depend

I think it rather odd”

 

“You think, you’ve come here on your own!

You thought to bring me cheer

But though I’m only flesh and bone

It’s God; who brought you here

 

The Lord today is calling you!

God wants to set you free

Allow His Spirit, make you new

Just like He did for me

 

Your deeds dear friend the Lord has seen

Your love for others too

Now let God’s grace intervene

Come drink of Heaven’s Dew

 

Oh yes! God sent you here today

He knows how much you care

Remember when you saw me pray?

God’s answered now that prayer”.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
