Praying to the Lord



When we pray

We express our belief and love for the Lord

We show our trust in Him

And adoring faith


No matter from where and how

We know the Lord will hear us

And He will know what to do

He will give His blessings to those in need


The words we speak to the Lord

Can be as short or as long as we wish

It’s more important that we trust and love the Lord

And know that He’s always nearby


Every time I look up into the sky

And see a special light shining through the clouds

I know it’s a beacon of hope

To me from the Lord above


We should never forget

To pray for those who don't know how

For the children of the world and the animals big and small

The Lord is there to protect them all


Let’s not forget to sing Him songs of praise

To let Him know that we believe

However He already knows for sure

If our faith keeps shining through


So let’s go through this world

By the Lord’s side

Let’s let Him guide us

Everyday along our way


Let’s keep our prayer sincere

Let our love for Him be there

Say thank you Lord for taking the time

To hear what I have to say

Knowing that God is there and that he sees and knows and that he is more than able to do anything is my comfort. He does see and know every moment of our life.

Great message Gypsy. Prayer is so important. Many of us only pray in need, instead we should always pray, in good and the bad. I try to key on this point, cause I use to be this way. Beautiful poem Gyspy. Hope all is well and take care.
