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!

Philippians 4:6

Prayer changes,
our thoughts
keeps our eyes on
satan’s plots.

Prayer prepares us,

sober and steadfast.

Prayer strengthens,

Prayer keeps us,
fervently watchful
helps us to remain
fiercely faithful.

Prayer changes,

for the twinkling!

I Talk to God ~

i-talk-to-god-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I talk to God,
whenever I cry
I talk to Him
when my spirits are high.

I talk to God,
when on my cell
I talk to Him
about heaven and hell.

I talk to God,
when I need strength
I talk to Him
at great lengths.

I talk to God,
in my sticky notes
I talk to Him
when His Word I quote.

I talk to God,
whatever the season
I talk to Him
no matter the reason.

I talk to God,
all of the time
He talks to me . . .
through my rhymes!

God’s Perfect Timing ~

gods-perfect-timing-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

I prayed a prayer,
not very long ago
I’ve been waiting for
the answer to know.

It was a short prayer,
over it I didn’t labor
after it was said . . .
I left it with my Savior.

I knew my request,
was safe in His hands
now it was up to me
in faith to just stand.

And so I do trust,
God’s answer is coming
for I believe it’s about
His perfect timing.

I prayed a prayer,
now I’m quietly waiting
while God’s response . . .
He is formulating!

~~~~~~~

Lamentations 3:25-26

“The Lord is good unto them
that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.

It is good that a man should
both hope and quietly wait
for the salvation of the Lord.”

Safe And Secure ~

safe-and-secure-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The safest shelter,
that is known to man
is coming to rest . . .
right into God’s hand.

There’s no other place,
in which we can find
a perfect defense for
the heart and mind.

The safest refuge,
in which to flee
is in the sanctuary
of bended knee

There’s no place,
that is  more securer
than when in prayer
with our soul’s insurer.

The safest abode,
that is known to man
is prayerfully finding
shelter in His hand!

~~~~~~

Psalm 62:8

” Trust in him
at all times; ye people,
pour out your heart
before him:
God is a refuge for us.”

Armed With Courage ~

armed-with-courage-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Armed with courage,
I pray for everything
in faith, I ask God
without wavering.

I’ll not get tossed,
on the waves of fear
for prayers can make
muddy waters clear.

Equipped with strength,
God’s Word is my shield
as I go out each day
on prayer’s battle field.

I’ll put on my armor,
in all of its entirety
I’ll not be doubt driven
for I trust God entirely.

Armed with prayer,
brave and courageous
my faith in God . . .
makes me dangerous!

~~~~~~~~

James 1:6

“But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering. For he that
wavereth is like a wave of

Prayer Make’s a Difference ~

Prayer Makes A Difference ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When our prayers,
get no response . . .
in prayer we need
to remain ensconced.

When mustn’t give up,
or from prayer bail out
they’ll make a difference
if we have no doubt.

We cannot lose heart,
in prayer we must persist
then fear and worry
we’ll be able to resist.

We mustn’t be weary,
or faint in our prayers
we need to remember
Jesus wants our cares.

When with our prayers,
God is slow to respond
expect an answer . . .
though it may be prolonged!

~~~~~~~~

“And he spake a parable
unto them to this end,
that men ought always
to pray, and not to faint;”

That Secret Place ~

That Secret Place ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I asked God . . .
where is that secret place
the one where I can find
sufficient is Your grace?

He said to me . . .
it’s right  inside of you
but you must learn to trust Me
in everything you do.

He took me to my knees,
and I poured out my heart
letting go of everything
that was keeping us apart.

I wept, I cried, I prayed,
for Him to never leave
then I heard Him whisper . . .
it’s you, who needs to cleave.

He gave me the strength,
to rise again to my feet
and said prayer is the secret place
where we can always meet!

“He that dwelleth in the secret place

My Prayer for Samuel ~

SAMUEL'S PRAYER
Samuel, God’s child,
His precious little one
trust Him to finish
what He has begun.

Gather your strength,
from the palm of His hands
know that He has for you
some mighty big plans.

Continue to be brave,

keep drawing on God’s
holy power and might.

Breath in His mercy,
exhale His grace
let His love for you
your tiny body embrace.

Samuel, God’s child,
Steve’s & Rachel’s precious son
stay brave, be strong . . .
believe this battle, will be won!

He and they need all of our prayers
for God’s strength, peace and mercy!

When Calm Eludes You ~

When Calmness Eludes ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When calm doesn’t come,
when peace is far away
I stop what I’m doing
and to my Father, I pray.

Prayer is my refuge,
from the dread inside me
it’s where I find comfort
from the fear, I can’t see.

When I am anxious,
when my nerves are a mess
I pray without stopping
to rid myself of distress.

I put my trust in God,
till I’m no longer afraid
His unfailing love keeps me
from becoming dismayed.

When calmness eludes you,
when peace seems so far away
the best thing you can do . . .
is stop everything and pray!

If We Want Peace ~

If We Want Peace ~ CHRISTian poety by deborah ann

If we want peace,
transforming our lives
then all of our fears
we must archive.

If we want peace,
altering our minds
then all of our cares
we must leave behind.

If we want peace,
changing our hearts
then from our worries
we must break apart.

If we want peace,
for the rest of our days
then for everything
we must learn to pray.

If we want peace,
then our attitudes
must be full of  . . .
thankful gratitude!

Philippians 4.6-7

“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 minds
through Christ Jesus.”

Look Into My Heart ~

Look Into My Heart Lord ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly Father,
look into my heart
peel back whatever
is keeping us apart.

Reveal the layers,
of my selfish pride
remove any vanity
still living inside.

Heavenly Father,
pare from my soul
all that’s keeping You
from having control.

Take away anything,
holding me back
where I am weak
take up the slack.

Heavenly Father,
unveil all keeping me
from truly knowing
the fullness of Thee!

Psalm 131:1

“Lord, my heart is not haughty,
nor mine eyes lofty: neither
do I exercise myself in great
matters, or in things too
high for me.”

Where Are You Lord ~

MY BELOVED BY JOHN EMERY FREE PHOTO #9352

Where are You Lord,
have You forgotten me
are You so far away
that me, You can’t see?

Are You in hiding,
where then shall I find
Your peace to fill up
my soul, heart and mind?

Where are You Lord,
I have looked all around
but a glimpse of You
was nowhere to be found?

Have You nothing to say,
though I’ve so much to ask
are You under the weather
not up to the task?

Lord, where shall I go,
so that You I will see?
For, I need You to make
Your presence known to me!

~~~~~~~~

Song of Solomon 5:6

King James Version

” I opened to my beloved;
but my beloved

I sought him, but I could
not find him;
I called him,
but he gave me no answer.”

A Hundred Prayers a Day ~

A Hundred Prayers A Day ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Sometimes I pray,
a hundred prayers a day
sometimes I send
many more God’s way.

Sometimes I pray,
in the dead of night
sometimes I pray
upon mornings light.

Sometimes I pray,
while I’m working
sometimes I pray
when I’m hurting.

Sometimes I pray,
when I’m idle
sometimes I pray
when I’m in denial.

Sometimes I pray,
when I’m too busy
sometimes I pray
when I’m in a tizzy.

Sometimes I pray,
all though the day
I pray even when  . . .
I don’t know what to say!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 8:26-27

“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.

And he that searcheth
the hearts knoweth what is the

mind of the Spirit, because he
maketh intercession

for the saints
according to the will of God.”

Prayer for the Persecuted ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ our-prayers-do-make-a-difference

Lord today I pray,
for Your healing hand
to reach across each sea
to stretch over every land.

I pray for each person,
who knows and loves Thee
for Your strength and courage
as their homelands they flee.

I pray for the persecuted,
for those dying each day
just because they believe
in the Life, Truth and Way.

I pray for the oppressed.
for the ones being abused
for those who are tormented
those being falsely accused.

I pray for all who suffer,
in the enemy’s evil hand
I pray for Your healing touch
over each downtrodden land.

Lord today I pray,
for mankind every where
for You to give them peace
in the midst of their despair!

~~~~~~~~

God CAN Fix This ~

Prayer Matters ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

God can fix this,
so don’t you stop praying
don’t listen to the critics
and what they are saying.

God can fix this,
if all would see His light
the evilness in the world
we’d no longer have to fight.

God can fix this,
if the world would repent
and accept Jesus . . .
as the Savior that He sent.

God can fix this,
through His love and grace
if the Truth, Life and Way
the world would embrace.

God can fix this,
He can fix everything
so don’t you ever stop . . .
praying about anything!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 107:28-30

“Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves
thereof are still.

Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.”
