HOW SHOULD I PRAY?

IMG_0198

ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

When troubles come and crush us deep,

They torture us so we can’t sleep,

Our voices close, our lips are sealed,

The words don’t come from hearts revealed.

 

Why is it when we come in prayer,

We just don’t have the words to share?

The struggles still continue on,

Our hopes diminish and are gone.

 

We lift our voices, but we fear,

That God’s too far away to hear.

We grow impatient and cannot wait,

We think our problems aren’t that great.

 

Our ego soon gets in the way.

We think that we don’t have to pray,

But God knows all our needs and cares;

He wants to hear our inmost prayers.

 

He sends His spirit to our side,

To speak in words we cannot hide.

He goes to God to intercede,

In royal language does He plead.

 

So take your troubles to the Lord,

Don’t struggle over the right word,

He loves to hear from you each day,

Don’t feel inadequate – just pray!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
