A Friend Needed Prayer

A Friend Needed Prayer



Someone came to me,

And needed prayer,

He was filled with no hope

No one seemed to care!


He had a simple request.

And asked me to pray…

It was hard to find the words to say.


I felt a deep struggle

 from my heart within,

I was trying to deal with my own sins!


THIS was something,

I needed to let go!,

This was eating

at my very soul.


My life had been

 such a mess.

I soon repented, and to God,

 I confessed,


I cried out and called on Jesus’ name

Inviting him into my

 whole life to reign.


I knelt before the Lord

 And humbly bowed….

My friend’s was going

 to be answered—somehow!


This prayer is one that I’ll join

and believe!

Every good gift from God

 is for all to receive!  .

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!
