Must We Pray?

† † †Must We Pray?

How important is prayer today?

Do we need bend the knee?

Are we supposed to fast and pray?

Has God not eyes to see?

Through prayer; we talk through Christ above

We seek The Fatherís face

Sweet fellowship in mutual love

Through Heavenís gift of grace

There is no cost to silent prayer

No price has one to pay

Each golden moment joint we share

Can be most anywhere

More sweeter than the driest wine

The world must this be told

Communion with our Lord divine

Is far more worth than gold

When prayer and tears become as one

When dormant faith revives

Power released through Christ Godís Son

Can touch so many lives

A prayer can cause Godís hand to rise

Cause kings to bend their knee

Can open up a blind manís eyes

Can set a prisoner free

Each tear the eyes of God can see

So each of foolish pride

Allow your tears and prayer run free

Reveal your true inside

Reveal by word or heartfelt thought

Relieve your burdened soul

Let prayer make known lifeís true report

Until you reach your goal.....

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.
