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.”

nor forsake thee.”

Into Deep Waters ~

Bow down your ear Lord,
hear my prayers flow . . .
for, into these deep waters
I don’t want to go.

Let them not get higher Lord,
make them start to recede
for, into these deep waters
I don’t want to proceed.

Turn back the tide Lord,
before I’m in over my head
for, into these deep waters
I don’t want to tread.

Throw me a lifeline Lord,
if not, I’ll surely drown
for, into these deep waters
I don’t want to go down.

I pled out my case,
till the deep waters abated
and then these words to me
the Good Lord related . . .

Oh My fearful child,
your deep waters I had to prolong
so that you could see . . .
how I was with you all along!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 43:2

“When thou passest through the waters,
I will be with thee; and through the
rivers, they shall not overflow thee:
when thou walkest through the fire,
thou shalt not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon 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!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 21:22

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

Staying Focused ~

Oh, do I have troubles,
boy, do I have cares
everyday on my nerves
they gnaw and wear.

But, I don’t let them,
eat away at me . . .
instead to my Father
I go on bended knee.

Oh, do I have worries,
boy, do I have woes
everyday on my peace
they want to impose.

But, I don’t let them,
take their toll on me . . .
instead I go to Jesus
and in His arms I flee.

Oh, do I have problems,
boy, do I ever have concerns
but, I just keep my focus . . .
on the day Jesus returns!

“For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,

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!

~~~~~~~

“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:

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.

Stir Our Hearts Lord ~

Stir our hearts Lord,
awaken our desire
to learn to do
all that You require.

Stir up our prayer life,
our thoughts stimulate
keep us on our knees
lest we become stagnate.

Stir our minds Lord,
excite us to press on
keep us watchful
till the race is won.

Stir up our faith life,
arouse our holy dullness
so we may be filled with
the Holy Spirit’s fullness.

Stir our souls Lord,
evoke a new awakening
let us have a resurgence
of Your Spirit’s enlightening!

~~~~~~

Psalm 43:3-4

“O send out thy light and thy truth:
let them lead me; let them bring me
unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

Isaiah 57:15

“For thus saith the high and lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity,
whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high
and holy place, with him also that is
of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

It Takes Work ~

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of studying.

It takes days,
months, even years
to get rid of
our doubts and fears.

It takes praying,
this Jesus believing
it takes time
a lot of Bible reading.

It takes faith,
trust and desire
for the Word of God
in us to inspire.

It takes work,
this Jesus believing
it takes a heart . . .
opened to receiving!

~~~~~~~~

John 6:28-29

“Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work
the works of God?

Jesus answered and said
unto them, This is
the work of God,
that ye believe
on him whom he hath sent.”

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.”

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,
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!

God Is Full of Mercy ~

God is full of mercy,
I know this to be true
and He wants me
to give some to you.

So, I pray He’ll comfort,
you in your suffering
and my pleas for you
to Him I’ll be offering.

God is full of favor,
I know this to be true
and He has given me
compassion just for you.

So, I’ll be asking Him,
to bring your heart peace
and that onto Jesus . . .
your cares you’ll release.

God is full of grace,
I know this to be true
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!

~~~~~~~~~

which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith
we ourselves are comforted of God.”

Peace Everlasting ~

One day the peace of God,
will be everlasting . . .

will be ones of gladness.

One day God’s mercy,
will no longer be needed
one day our every fear
will finally be defeated.

One day our true hope,
will be revealed to us
one day we will see
the God in whom we trust.

One day the peace of God,
will be truly everlasting . . .
and in our hearts and minds
it’ll no longer be surpassing!

“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.”

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.

we have the petitions that
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!
