Many in Church Don't Know of God's

Many In Church Don’t Know of God’s Power!


There’s many people who attend church on Sundays.

And yet don’t really understand what God’s word says!


Many get excited when the church has a “coffee hour.”

But few really have a desire to experience God’s power!


Prayer time is too often just a few words that are said.

They sing a good tune, but many are “spiritually dead.”


An evangelist comes to town, and many rush to see him!

It’s almost like they want to “bow down” before him!


I’m not here to look for a preacher to get me “excited.”

I want to experience the power of God, that he’s provided!


If I need a drive thru restaurant, I don’t need a church to do it!

When it comes to knowing God’s power…  Many refuse it!


It’s only the power of the Lord Jesus, that can raise the dead!

It’s only through knowing his word, that we can truly be fed!


If you want someone to stroke you ears, you’ll find them!

Many will say what you want to hear!  You probably know them!


But if you really want the power of God to really change you!

You need to seek his presence!  And allow it to touch you!


If you can’t find it in a church building, get into a prayer closet!

There’s a move of God that’s stirring!  But many have lost it!


Seek the Lord while he may be found!  And enter into his presence!

The Holy Spirit wants to fill you with power!  And is omnipresent!


Please come Lord Jesus, and forgive us of our sinful living!

May we enter your courts with a heart

of praise and thanksgiving!


We need you Lord Jesus!  May we lift your name up higher!

And seek to be filled with your Holy Ghost’ fire!

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!
