Call Out to God ~

Whenever your spirit,
is overwhelmed within
when you feel your troubles
you are drowning in.

Call out to God,
tell Him about your fear
then watch as to you
He draws close and near.

Whenever you feel,
you’re about to meltdown
when you feel hard pressed
by your cares all around.

Call out to God,
before you fall apart
He will come and release
His peace into your heart.

Whenever your mind,
is weighted down
by all those worries
you carry around.

Call out to God,
when you’re distressed
and with His presence
you will be blessed!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 120.1

“In my distress
I cried
unto the Lord,
and he
heard me.”

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.”

Rejoicing Always ~

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
when things aren’t going right
it hard to give God thanks . . .
with so many battles to fight.

It’s hard to see God’s hand,
in the middle of the pain
it hard to be grateful
when all your joy is drained.

But we who have Jesus,
living inside of us
know how important it is
in Him to always trust.

For, to always be rejoicing,
takes prayer continually
and then our thanks to God
will come unceasingly.

It’s hard to be rejoicing,
with all that life brings . . .
but, we know it’s God will
to be thankful for all things!

~~~~~~~~

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

“Rejoice always,
pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus for you.”

Making My Life Count ~

One day to God,
I will give account
of all of my doings
and my where’s-about.

So each day I try,
in His presence to live
and my attention
to Him, I hourly give.

For, His eyes see all,
they are everywhere
as He travels with me
on life’s thoroughfare.

So I pray every day,
God’s ways I will know
for I don’t want to journey
where He would not go.

For, Jesus abides in me,
and I need to be wary
for I do not know . . .
how long He may tarry.

So I live my life,
knowing I’ll give account
tis why all my days for Him
I want to make count!

Romans 14:12

“So then every one of us
shall give account of
himself to God.”

Hopefully, Joyful ~

Lord, once again
You proved to be faithful
and once again to You
I am truly grateful.

For, You have taught me,
how to cast my cares
onto You with my pleas
and my thankful prayers.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be trusting
and to my aide today
You faithfully came rushing.

You assured me,
for me You’d be here
to ease all my anxiety
and alleviate my fear.

Lord, once again,
You proved to be loyal
tis why today . . .
I’m hopefully, joyful!

In The Waiting Room ~

In the waiting room,
I often have to sit
though at times . . .
it gives me the fits.

For, I get impatient,
waiting just to hear
God’s answers being
whispered in my ear.

In the waiting room,
I sit and I rock
back and forth I go
listening for His knock.

But, I get so dizzy,
bobbing in my chair
as I’m waiting on God
to take away my care.

In the waiting room,
is where I need to be
for it’s when with faith
God empowers me!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 27:14

“Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen
thine heart:
wait, I say,
on the Lord.”

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

“Confess your faults one to another,
and pray one for another,
that ye may be healed.

Lift Me Higher Lord ~

When my troubles,
are overwhelming
before my cares
become unrelenting.

I look to Jesus,
to lift me higher
so His peace
I might acquire.

When my worries,
are too heavy
before my tears
become steady.

I go to Jesus,
my High Rock
and in the storm
with Him I walk.

When my fears,
begin to transpire
I look to Jesus
to lift me higher!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 61:2

“From the end of the earth
will I cry unto thee,
When my heart
is overwhelmed:
lead me to the Rock
that is higher than I.”

When Confident ~

When we’re confident,
when our faith is strong
we can bet on this . . .
satan will come along.

He wants to shake us,
right off of our foundation
by saying we’re not worthy
of grace, unto salvation.

When we’re confident,
in the God whom we trust
we can be sure of this . . .
satan will come after us.

He wants us to believe,
God doesn’t hear our prayers
nor does He want to listen
all about our earthly cares.

When we’re confident,
know satan will attack
so we need to be sure
our whole armor is intact!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-11

“Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.

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.”

Oh, My Anxious Child ~

One day I asked the Lord,
what is it I should do . . .
how can I possibly give
all my cares to You?

He said to me my child,
it’s easy if you will . . .
believe I am the One
who can your troubles still.

I thought this over,
for a minute or two
but, I still needed Him
to tell me just how to.

So I asked Him again,
Lord, how can I release
the burdens I carry
so I can have Your peace?

He said to me my child,
true rest you will find
if you let Me guard
your heart and your mind.

I knew the Lord was right,
so I began to pray
and when I was done
here’s what He had to say . . .

Be not anxious my child,
but in every thing by prayer
give me your thanksgiving
and I’ll take from you your care!

~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Examine My Heart Lord ~

Lord, search my heart,
from the inside out
tell me where You find
places of fear and doubt.

See if You see in me,
any remaining skepticism
put into my heart
by religious dogmatism.

Lord, pull the reins,
of my heart today
steer them to follow
Your righteous ways.

Yank hard if You must,
so closer to You I’ll turn
jerk ’em if You have to
so in hell I’ll not burn.

Lord, check the fruit,
for You, I am bearing
if any be rotting . . .
be quick with Your paring.

Make sure all my doings,
are being done for You
oh, Lord examine my heart
take hold of the reins too!

~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:10

I the Lord search the heart,
I try the reins, even to give

I Do Not Doubt ~

My God has designs,
He will figure this out
He has a plan for me
in this, I do not doubt.

Though I’m concerned,
He knows just what to do
and so my Father . . .
in faith, I leave this with You.

My God keeps His promises,
He is forever merciful
everything He does
is perfectly, purposeful.

Though I may be worried,
I am not afraid
for I know with God
I’m not to be dismayed.

My God is good,
He’s always fair and just
that is why in Him . . .
I choose to place my trust!

Open Our Eyes Lord ~

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of Your wonder
on Your very Word
may we daily ponder.

Let us see You,
in all of Your goodness
give us an eye-full
of Your loving-kindness.

Open our eyes Lord,
to all of the splendor
of living a life . . .
to You, in surrender.

Let us always dwell,
on all that is right
give us a glimpse into
the lamp of Your light.

Open our eyes Lord,
to Your Word wondrous
so we may see how much
to us, You are generous!

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,

Throbbing starts,
take migraine pill

and just be still.

Shut off lights,

as head goes . . .

Rockin and reeling,
from the pain

to end this migraine.

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

you in your suffering

and He wants me to show
how much He loves you.

So, I will be making,
for you intercessions
and pray His mercy
relieves your afflictions!

we ourselves are comforted of God.”

Rejoice Forever More ~

thanks for everything
we would have joy
no matter what life brings.

If we were to pray,

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!

~~~~~~

we desired of him.”

Life’s Demands ~

Lord, sometimes I get exhausted,
with all of life’s demands
sometimes I get so tired
following everyone’s commands.

For, I would much rather,
just spend time alone with You
with my Bible and commentary
the only two things in view.

Lord, sometimes I get fatigued,
just thinking of all I’ve to do
sometimes I am overwhelmed
meeting time lines, coming due.

For, I would so much rather,
just sit and listen to . . .
praise and worship songs
about my love for You.

Lord, sometimes I get weary,
thinking about the day ahead
for, I would so much rather  . . .
just stay praying to You in bed!

Chilling Out ~

Today, I am chilling,
going to take it easy
not letting my fears
make me feel queasy.

Today, I am relaxing,
got me not a care
for, I took them all
to my Lord in prayer.

Today, I am resting,
letting go of it all
for, into the worry pit
I refuse to fall.

Today, I am slacking,
just Jesus and me
there’s not a doubt
together we will be.

Today I am chilling,
I’ll be easy-going . . .
for with God’s peace
I am overflowing!

ALMIGHTY GOD — THE BEGINNING AND THE END

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”(Matt 25:1)Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
