In My Prayer Garden ~

Direct my Paths used with permission Doorpost Verses on Facebook

Sometimes, when the day is over,
and the shadows turn to night
when I’m tired from all the worry
and there seems no end in sight.

When my problems seem too big,
and the answers seem so few
when the days are just impossible
and the nights too hard to get through.

When I have no strength left in me,
and I can’t go on another mile
when tomorrow holds no promise
and the darkness steals away my smile.

When I am feeling down and out,
and no one else can appease
I go into my prayer garden . . .
and I fall down on my knees.

It is there I meet the Lord,
and I make my heartfelt plea
for some respite and comfort
from the worries surrounding me.

It’s there that I find rest,
where I have a sense of peace
it’s when I am with the Lord
my fears begin to cease.

In my prayer garden,
sometimes, I just want to stay . . .
for while I am there with Jesus
my weariness fades away!

Matthew 6:6
King James Version

“But thou, when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet,

and when thou
hast shut thy door,

pray to thy Father
which is in secret;

and thy Father
which seeth in secret
shall reward thee openly.”

In Everything . . . with Prayer ~

Praying with Bible used with permission Creation Swap

In everything by prayer,
with a thankful plea
let your requests be made known
on bended, grateful knee.

And the peace that God possess,
though you might not understand
will fill your hearts and minds
and you’ll find rest in hands.

For, God knows our every need,
each worry, every care
but we must always offer Him
our constant, thankful prayer.

He understands our wants,
sees our hearts truest desires
before we even come to Him
yet, our prayers He still requires.

For, God wants us to know,
the richness of His grace
and He will lavish it on those
who humbly seek His face.

Then we’ll know our peace,
is the privilege of our salvation
when we make known our requests
with heartfelt praise and adoration!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 4:6-7
King James Version

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests
be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which
passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts
and mins through Christ Jesus.”

Looking Unto Jesus ~

Looking Unto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I’m keeping my eyes on Him
for this race I am running
I know together we will win.

The track that’s before me,
keeps going round and round
but with Jesus as my coach
each obstacle I can bound.

If I’m to go the distance,
then I’ll need a place to rest
so I’ll turn to my Savior
for strength to do my best.

As I come upon the hurdles,
thrown at me each day
I will rely on Jesus
to move them out of the way.

This race is long and hard,
there is no easy road
but with Jesus at my side
He’ll help me with my load.

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I got to keeping going straight
for if I take my eyes off Him . . .
I might miss the narrow gate!

Hebrews 12:1

“Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us
lay aside every weight, and
the sin which doth so easily
beset us, and let us run with
patience the race that is
set before us,”

King James Vernon
