Jesus, I Pray For My Brothers!

Jesus, I Pray for My Brothers!

Years ago, I suggested to my brothers that we pray.
They simply laughed at what I had to say!

I thought it would be good to get together...
That God's love would bind our hearts forever!

Division took place and took the "upper hand."
I don't think they'd listen or even understand!

Over the many years that just went on by...
They never once took the time to say; "hi!"

Even though they never once seemed to care.
I decided to take some time in deep prayer!

It was like they would make fun of what I said.
At times, maybe they wished I were "dead."

At this time, there's a strong and powerful force
That's blowing their lives are way off course!

I pray that God's spirit will get a hold of them!
And let them now how much he loves them!

I pray that God's love will be the glue that binds them!
May God's mercy and joy be what finds them!

I pray that evil will not find it's way in their home!
And they would allow Jesus to rule on their "throne."

Even though they tried to cast me off, as a "fool."
It's God's words, in their lives, that must rule!

Jesus can turn around even the worst situation!
By the power of his glory and resurrection!

Please, dear lord, bind them forever as won!
Bless their home! Their daughters and sons!

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!
