Shackles Of Paul & Silas (3)....

Sing bold before Salvationís throne

Let praise reach hallowed ground

Allow your deepest thoughts be known

Love; heart and soul resound

Praises will bring an end to doubt

Depression will depart

Will conquer famine, vanquish drought

Will touch The Fatherís heart

Praise can turn the deepest seas

Bring mighty storms to cease

Will bring the devil to his knees

And bring the sweetest peace

When Jehoshaphat; praised The Lord

Abraham bent his knee

Salvation heard God raised His sword

And set His people free

They knew the truth they knew their King

They knew Godís promise made

They knew if praise to God theyíd sing

Fear would surely fade

Today we too should seek The Light

Sing praise of Christ on high

To set the foe in total flight

And cause oneís fear to die

To each Godís promises remain

Godís Word stands always true

No song of praise is sung in vain

By servants born anew

The Lord can feel a praising soul

He hears when children pray

He longs to make us quick and whole

Beyond the youngest day.....

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.
