Prayer - Asap - Always Say a Prayer - 35th "Good Word" of the Good Words Project!

Updated on June 14, 2020

Prayer - 35th Good Word in the Good Words Project

The "Good Words" project, created by Jo 'Grace' Goldsmith.

Grace gives us a good word each week to practice living by, to help and inspire fellow Hubbers, to become the best writers we can be.

This is Grace's calling, to inspire and promote writers, authors and poets.

When Grace first started the "Good Words" project, I promised to write a poem for every good word. I may not get them done as quickly as I would like but will continue to do them as quickly as possible for me.

I so admire Grace for her Leadership in starting this project, I also know that it is her Ambition to help unknown writers gain recognition for their work.

I read Grace’s testimony of losing her practice of prayer, and this poem is dedicated to my dear friend Jo 'Grace' Goldsmith.

I know what my friend Grace is saying

When she said she felt her spirit

Had fallen into a hole

And I feel somehow

My own faith is waning

And maybe growing cold

As I spoke with Grace

She listened patiently

To my tales of woe

It was then I felt ashamed

For her to hear me complaining so…

Then I remembered a Bible verse I’d read

“So then because thou art lukewarm,

Neither hot nor cold”_____Revelation 3:16

Keeps going round inside my head

And filled my heart with dread

My Prayer time had dwindled

Prayers were left unsaid

When all the earthly complications

Filled my thoughts instead

As in my closet on my knees

My private time with Jesus

Needs to be rekindled

And my Prayers must all be said


Always say a Prayer (ASAP)

Always say a Prayer

The way that Jesus taught

But, humbly say your prayers

You do not need to pray out loud

Then you would be praying to the crowds

"But when thou Prayest

Enter into thy closet

And when thou hast shut thy door, PRAY" _____Matthew 6:6-13
