The Heart is Hungry Poem - Prayer Changes Things

Updated on March 14, 2012

Prayer Changes Things

In the snares of pain, in the depths of despair, that is when one turns their focus to God. It is in those deepest dark moments in life when one feels devoured by their pain, they reach out to God.

Unseen and often misunderstood, God is still very present. He waits patiently. He listens attentively. He cares deeply. He loves unconditionally.

God is in the details. Our hearts cry out to him in our despair and He picks us up right where we are.

This poem was written after grief consumed the soul. Reaching out to His word and seeking His face, this is an inspirational poem waiting on answers.

A prayer of worship and praise communicated through this poem, "The Heart is Hungry".

Read this prayer out-loud or in silence, and remember, Prayer Changes Things.


Your heart is hungry

To know Him



For truth


Words of wisdom

And still

You haven’t found

What you are

Looking for


Why are you crying?

Why are you trying?

To earn

His grace


Everything is falling


Desperately alone

Without reason


Teach us how

To worship you

Teach us how

To love you


Finding strength

To pull myself


God still

Remains silent



The prayers

Carried along

On the wings

Of holy angels

God is listening



At that very


He touched

My heart


He heard

My prayer

Speaking love

Into my soul


My spirit

Is moved

Beyond compare

God Speaking

      Nice one.

      Though I don't necessarily pray very often, I understand where this is coming from.

      I have felt that before, but it was a while ago.

      God is there at the right moment. Usually it is just before we go down for the last time, but he is always there and will never allow us to have more on us than we can carry. Sometimes he may stretch us to make us grow and this is a good thing.

      Yes, God is here among all of us and shamefully we do not see until a problem stares us in the face and than we speak out. "Oh my God". Thanks for sharing this lovely poem, giving me the opportunity to see God today and take time out to prey.
