The Valley of Hope ~

in-the-valley-of-hope-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

There is a valley,
I call hope . .
it’s where I gather
strength to cope.

I take my time,
as through it I go
praying all the way
God’s plans I’ll know.

I often rest,
along side a hill
it’s where I learn
how to be still.

I amble slowly,
around each bend
asking God all along
more faith He’ll send.

There is a valley,
hope is its name
where springs of trust
in God’s peace I claim!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 104:10

“He sendeth the springs
into the valleys, which
run among the hills.”

Praying for God Peace ~

praying-for-god-peace-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every day to God,
I pray for His peace
I ask that my faith
in Him, to increase.

I pray for renewal,
in spirit and in mind
I ask that His will
will be easy to find.

Every day to God,
I pray for directions
I ask Him to give me
Spirit filled instructions.

I give Him my burden,
my worry and my care
I let Him know they are
too much for me to bear.

Every day to God,
His peace, I pray for
and He never fails . . .
to always give me more!

“The Lord will give strength
unto his people; the Lord
will bless his people with peace.”

Seeking God First ~

seeking-god-first-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

When in the morning,
when God you first seek
ask Him to make you strong
in the places you are weak.

Ask Him to reveal to you,
what is His perfect will
ask Him to give you calm
in the areas you aren’t still.

Ask Him to shine His light,
on the righteous way
ask Him to be your eyes
before you start your day.

Ask Him to fill your heart,
with His mercy and His love
ask Him to be your ears
so to hear His voice above.

When in the evening,
when to God you start to pray
ask Him to remind you . . .
to seek Him first, the next day!

Psalm 5:3

” My voice shalt thou hear
in the morning, O Lord;
in the morning will I direct

and will look up.”

On The Winds of Adversity ~

on-the-winds-of-adversity-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

On the winds of adversity,
God seems to test us
and all we can really do . . .
is to hold on to our trust.

With each passing gale,
that rages through our life
all we can really do . . .
is to give Jesus our strife.

As the gusts keep coming,
and the storms continue on
all we can really do . . .
is to be calm til they’re gone.

With each rushing wind,
that comes about our way
all we can really do . . .
is to turn to God and pray.

For, the storms of this life,
will eventually cease
and one day Jesus will bring . . .
to our souls perfect peace!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:26

“And he saith unto them,
Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith?
Then he arose,
and rebuked the winds
and the sea; and there was
a great calm.”

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!

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
the sea driven with the
wind and tossed.

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;”

Heavenly Gifts ~

Heavenly Gifts ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father above
wrapped in His goodness
tied up with His love.

So many blessings,
to me He sends
when on His Spirit
my life depends.

Heavenly gifts,
from my Father to me
so the truth and way
I will always see.

Longing to give,
eager to impart
power and might
right into my heart.

Heavenly gifts,
my Father sends my way
His spiritual fruit . . .
for me to grow each day!

know how to give good gifts
unto your children: how much

Trust and Be Still ~

Trust and Be Still ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

So many desires,
so many petitions
so many asking
God for provisions.

So many needing,
answer to prayers
so many wondering
if God really cares.

So many wanting,
to know if God hears
so many discouraged
by all of their fears.

So many requests,
to have an answer
so many let doubt
spread like cancer.

So many petitions,
for knowing God’s will
so little confidence . . .
to trust and be still!

~~~~~~~

1 John 5:14-15

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

And if we know that he hear us,
whatsoever we ask, we know
that we have the petitions
that we desired of him.”

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

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

Walking By Faith ~

Walking by Faith ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

I walk by faith,
into the unknown
but, I trust the way
to me will be shown.

It’s not my eyes,
that gives me light
for, it’s God’s Word
that gives me sight.

I walk by faith,
I look for guidance
in my Bible . . .
I put my reliance.

I trust in God,
to guide me
into the things
I cannot see.

I walk by faith,
if I lose my way
I simply stop . .
and to God I pray.

For He gives me,
the vision I need . . .
when to His Word
I obey and heed.

I walk by faith,
into the unknown
for, I’m sure it leads
right to His throne!

Ouch ~

growing-old-gracefully CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When you are hurting,
and your body aches . . .
when your every nerve
gives you the shakes.

When your knees are sore,
and your legs give out
whenever you try to rise
and all you can do is shout.

When your neck is stiff,
and your back won’t bend
when pains shooting message
to your brain begins to send.

When your every move,
causes you to go “ouch”
when you can’t get up
from your chair or couch.

When your hips stop moving,
and your ankles buckle in
before you fall over . . .
pray for His strength within!

Sea Worthy ~

Sea Worthy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Today upon the sea,
I went out for a sail
the day was perfect
as far as I could tell.

The skies were sunny,
the water was clear
giving me no reason
to have me any fear.

There I was floating,
on the sea of tranquility
relaxing in the calm
of the water’s serenity.

The breeze was gentle,
while I drifted about
it gave me no cause
to worry or to doubt.

Then suddenly I saw,
a squall in the distance
and I knew right away
I’d need some assistance.

So, to my loving Savior,
I began to pray . . .
for more faith in the blast
barreling my way.

For, I knew by myself,
I’d face a stormy journey
if Jesus didn’t make me . . .
in Him ~ sea worthy!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 8:24-25

“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea,
insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves:
but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying,
Lord, save us: we perish

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful,
O ye of little faith?

  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea;
and there was a great calm.”

When You’re Fired Tested ~

Fire Tested ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When your faith is tested,
when it’s being tried
you must not forget . . .
how and why Jesus died.

For His faith was also,
put through the test . . .
and in His Father’s love
He always found rest.

When you face suffering,
common to all of us
you must not forget . . .
where Jesus put His trust.

When He was afflicted,
to His Father He would go
praying His Father’s will . . .
He would come to know.

When you’re fire tested,
for what you believe . . .
pray to your Father too
and joy you’ll receive.

For, in trying times,
we can easily rejoice
when we listen to . . .
the Holy Spirit’s voice!

~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 4:12-13

“Beloved, think it not strange
concerning the fiery trial which
is to try you,as though some strange
thing happened unto you:

But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are
partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be revealed,
ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”

from my swollen eyes
I know the One I believe
will listen to my cries.

Whenever I am restless,
when my fears overpower
I lift my eyes to heaven

the One who’s full of mercy
gives me peace to embrace.

Whenever I am sad,
I lift my head up high
knowing that my tears
the One I trust will dry!
