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!
