Jesus Prays For Us ~

When my words,
I cannot form
and to God my pleas
I cannot inform.

That’s when Jesus,
steps right in
with moans coming
from deep within.

When I can’t even,
begin to pray
all though I have
a lot to say.

That’s when Jesus,
for me advocates
and my prayers to God
He formulates.

When my words,
can’t form my needs
that’s when Jesus . . .
for me intercedes!

1 Timothy 2:5

“For there is one God,

Remote Places ~

Into remote places,
Jesus goes with us
to teach us to pray
so in Him we may trust.

There with Him at our side,
while on bended knee
He gives us more faith
in what we cannot see.

Into barren places,
deep within our soul
Jesus persuades us
to give Him control.

There with Him at His feet,
in the depth of our despair
He shows us how to give
to Him our every care.

Into desolate places,
with Jesus we go . . .
so we can pray His will
we may come to know!

~~~~~

Mark 1:35

And in the morning,
rising up a great while before day,
he went out, and departed into a
solitary place, and there prayed.

When All Seems Dark ~

I know right now,
all seems so dark . . .
and you’re not sure
just where to start.

The news you got,
wasn’t very good
your mind is stuck
on the if’s and could’s.

But, God’s got this,
He knows what to do
and His wisdom
will surely come to you.

I know right now,
all seem so bleak
answers to questions
are all you seek.

So much uncertainty,
right now to face
too many decision
you need to embrace.

But, Jesus is there,
right now with you
to help and show you
what you need to do.

I know right now,
it seems dark tonight
but, tomorrow you’ll see
things better in His light!

1 Timothy 2:1

“I exhort therefore,
that, first of all,
supplications, prayers,

Stop And Pray Each Day ~

 

Each day we need,
to stop and pray
and listen to . . .
what God has to say.

We need to pray,
for His mercy anew
so temptation
we can subdue.

We need to pray,
for more grace
so the enemy
we can face.

We need to pray,
for His favor
if our faith
should waiver.

We Need to pray,
for His healing balm
to help keeps us
still and calm.

We need to pray,
for His power
so we’ll have victory
no matter the hour.

We need to pray,
for His wisdom
to give unto us
a clear vision.

Each day we need,
to continually pray . . .
for we never know
what’ll come our way!

Straight With God ~

Lord, let me be honest,
for, I want You to know . . .
that my faith and trust in You
does not always show.

Please don’t get angry,
when I say You seem far away
don’t be upset with me
for thinking at times this way.

Lord, don’t be disappointed,
when my hope becomes faint
do not get discouraged
when I find it’s hard to wait.

Please do not be enraged,
don’t turn Your ears off
when I’m feeling this way
do not at me scoff.

Lord, do not rebuke,
or chastise me . . .
I’m being straight with You
so the closer we can be!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 6:1

” O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger,
neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

O God; and hide not
thyself from my supplication.”

Look Up To God ~

Early in the morning,
before your arise . . .
make sure to your worries
you keep God apprised.

Let Him know before,
you get your day started
why it is that you feel
fearful and fainthearted.

Early in the morning,
as the sun comes up
before you pour coffee
into your mug or cup.

Let God know how much,
you need Him to be with you
how impossible it’d be
without Him to make it through.

Early in the morning
before out of bed you climb
look up to God and spend . . .
with Him some quality time!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 5:3

“My voice shalt thou
hear in the morning,
O Lord; in the morning
will I direct my prayer
unto thee, and will look up.”

Conversing With God ~

You can pray to God,
from anywhere . . .
whether you’re outside
or home in your chair.

God is always listening,
His ear is always near
He has the capacity
for every prayer to hear.

You can pray to God,
about everything
He is receptive . . .
to hear anything.

God is always willing,
to listen to your heart
in your supplications
He wants to take part.

You can pray to God,
He loves to converse
you can just let it go
no need to rehearse.

God is available,
morning, noon or night
it doesn’t matter . . .
the time is always right.

You can pray to God,
have a real conversation
whether out in the open
or in quiet mediation!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 55:17

“Evening, and morning,
and at noon, will I pray,
and cry aloud: and he
shall hear my voice.”

Asking, Believing & Receiving ~

Our Bible tells us,
that we need to ask
for, God to our needs
is up to the task.

But, we must pray,
for them to be met
lest over them
we’ll worry and fret.

Our Bible reveals,
to make known our prayer
for, God wants to help us
with our every care.

But, we must plea,
before Him our case
lest we fail to be . . .
renewed by His grace.

Our Bible says to us,
to pray without ceasing
but, we must go to God . . .
trusting and believing!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 21:22

“And all things,
whatsoever ye shall ask
in prayer, believing,
ye shall receive.

1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Pray without ceasing.”

Whenever I Pray ~

Whenever I pray,
my faith increases
as I release my pleas
my fear decreases.

My confidence grows stronger,
my hope is reinforced
any lingering doubtfulness
quickly gets disbursed.

My mind gets elated,
my heart more exhilarated
my cares and concerns
are promptly alleviated.

My troubles get fewer,
my enemies are defeated
any doubts that I have
swiftly are depleted.

Whenever I pray,
my faith starts exploding
for prayer keeps my trust . . .
in God from corroding!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 5:14

“And this is the confidence
that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according
to his will, he heareth us:”

So Many Sorrows ~

So many sorrows,
too much suffering
so many needing
God’s conforming.

So much illnesses,
too many sick
so many needing
God’s healing quick.

So much confusion,
too many restless
so many needing
God’s peacefulness.

So many troubles,
too much worry
so many blessings
God needs to hurry.

So much sorrow,
so many prayers
so many who need . . .
to know God still cares!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 38:21-22

“Forsake me not, O Lord:
O my God, be not far from me.

Make haste to help me,
O Lord my salvation.”

“I will never leave thee,
nor forsake thee.”

Daily Prayers ~

I pray each day,
for these things
and for the peace
that they’ll  bring.

For my weaknesses,
to be strong
lest I stop singing
salvation’s song.

For my daily needs,
to be met
lest God’s goodness
I forget.

For my fears,
to be set free
lest His mercy
I’ll fail to see.

For my worries,
alone not to bear
lest onto Jesus
I’ll cast not my care.

For my doubt,
to turn to trust
lest to God’s ways
I’ll not adjust.

Each new day,
before I start
I give to God
prayers on my heart!

“And all things,
whatsoever ye shall ask
in prayer,
believing,
ye shall receive.”

Ever Patiently ~

Sometimes when we pray,
we want an instant result
and if we do not get it . . .
we take it as an insult.

So we become disillusioned,
for many of us think
that the chain of prayer
is some kind of magic link.

But, God isn’t a genie,
who grants our every wish
nor a leprechaun with a pot . . .
of gold to make us rich.

Instead, we must be diligent,
and in our prayers persevere
not letting our disappointment
with God’s stillness to interfere.

Sometimes when we pray,
we want answers instantly
so if God has you waiting . . .
do so, ever patiently!

~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 66:20

“Blessed be God,
which hath not turned
away my prayer,
nor his mercy from me.”

Not A Word ~

Awhile ago,
I said me a prayer
asking God to help me
with one of my cares.

I waited patiently,
for Him to reply
but, I heard not a word
as time went by.

At first I was grieved,
by God’s silence
for, I so needed Him
to give me guidance.

But, as the days went on,
my faith grew stronger
and my doubt in Him
deterred me no longer.

Then one day I saw,
much to my surprise . . .
His answer was always
right before my eyes!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 11:6

“But without faith it is impossible
to please him: for he that cometh
to God must believe that he is,
and that he is a rewarder of them
that diligently seek him.

Matthew 15:22-23

“And, behold, a woman of Canaan
came out of the same coasts,
and cried unto him, saying,
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
thou son of David;
my daughter is grievously
vexed with a devil.

But he answered her not a word.
And his disciples came and
besought him, saying,
Send her away; for she
crieth after us.”

Prayer Requires ~

Our prayers require,
our perseverance
and a thankful heart
to fuel our endurance.

For our supplications,
to a God who knows all
need from grateful lips
to unceasingly fall.

When we’ve no words,
to utter or to speak
when our groanings turn
ineffective and weak.

The Holy Spirit,
for us will intercede
and an indebted heart
we are going to need.

Our prayers require,
our praise and thanksgiving
to a God that’s always been
trusting and forgiving!

~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth
our infirmities:
for we know not what we should pray
for as we ought: but the Spirit itself
maketh intercession for us with
groanings which cannot be uttered.

Prayers For You My Friend ~

God put you my friend,
on my heart today
He told me for you
He wanted me to pray.

So I went to Him,
while on my knees
and sent up for you
theses heartfelt pleas.

Oh, Father whatsoever,
is Your perfect will
till my friend knows
help them to be still.

Take away their fears,
guard their heart and mind
so that on this journey
your peace they can find.

Be with them always,
do not leave their side
let the Light in Your Word
be their constant guide.

Give them Your power,
the courage to press on
let them claim victory
in the name of Your Son.

Help them not to get tired,
in the battle they must fight
let them feel energized
with the Holy Spirit’s might.

Oh, Father I believe,
you listen to our prayers
and so I come to You  . . .
with my friend’s earthly cares!

James 5:16

If It Be God’s Will ~

If we ask in faith
then we must believe
if it be God’s will . . .
our requests we’ll receive.

If we ask in faith,
and put aside our doubt
if it be God’s will . . .
our pleas He’ll carry out.

If we ask in faith,
without any hesitation
if it be God’s will . . .
He’ll bless our supplication.

If we ask in faith,
and not have any distrust
if it be God’s will . . .
our prayers He’ll grant us.

If we ask in faith,
if it be God’s will . . .
then our requests to Him
He will indeed fulfill!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:6

“But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering.
For he that wavereth
is like a wave
of the sea driven
with the wind and tossed.”

Migraines ~

Light flashes,
lines zig-zagging
arms go limp
eyes starts sagging.

Dizzy and woozy,
room is a spinning
migraine headache
is just beginning.

Close my eyes,
go with the flow
sit back and watch
the light show.

Throbbing starts,
take migraine pill
try to relax
and just be still.

Shut off lights,
turn down sound
as head goes . . .
pound, pound, pound.

Rockin and reeling,
from the pain
oh, how I wish
to end this migraine.

If you suffer,
just like I do . . .
please let me know
so I can pray for you!

Rejoice Forever More ~

If we were to give,
thanks for everything
we would have joy
no matter what life brings.

If we were to pray,
without ever stopping
we’d have God peace
in our heart’s throbbing.

If we were to be,
always prayerful
we’d remain in Jesus
always faithful.

If we were to seek,
God’s will each day
we’d be on our knees
whenever we pray.

If we are thankful,
to God when we implore
then we will rejoice . . .
with Him forever more!

~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5.16-18

Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus
concerning you.

Be Patient With God ~

Be patient with God,
He knows what He’s doing
sometimes to our prayers
He takes His time moving.

Be patient with God,
enjoy the time waiting
for the answers to our prayers
He’s carefully delegating.

Be patient with God,
He is working out His plan
you will need a lot of faith
to fill in the time span.

Be patient with God,
give Him the time He needs
not all of His answers
come at rapid speeds.

Be patient with God,
trust Him and be still
He’s working out for you
what is His perfect will.

Be patient with God,
your times are in His hands
and for you He is working on
His awesome, amazing plans!

When My Heart is Troubled ~

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
I gratefully go to God
with my pleas and prayers.

When my heart is faint,
when my mind has unrest
I pray for God’s peace
upon my first request.

When my heart is heavy,
when my mind has doubt
I pray ceaselessly believing
God will work things out.

When my heart is weary,
when my mind’s full of fear
I pray asking my Father
to drawn me close and near.

When my heart is troubled,
when my mind has cares
at Jesus’ feet I leave them
with my thankful prayers!
