A Faithful Prayer

*Pastor’s Note: When you’ve been involved in online ministry for as long as I have, it’s easy to make friends and acquaintances along the way. Sister Nancy Burr was one of them. Soon after I got started online and I learned how to create websites, I ran across her beautiful poetry. She was one of the very first Christian poets to let me use her poetry. I miss her as she’s at home with the Lord now, but I still have some of her poetry. The following is one of those poems I love. It’s simple, yet to the point. For me, her poems always hit the inspirational mark. I hope and pray you will enjoy it also.


Sometimes as I go through life,
Problems come my way.
It makes me feel so far from You,
I am lost and gone astray.

Then I find You in a prayer,
You tell me that You love me.
I find you in a faithful prayer,
You say You will not leave me.

You find me in my hiding place,
I can’t escape Your love.
You give me all I’ll ever need,
A gift from up above.

I know I don’t deserve You,
Your mercy or Your grace.
But still You’re always there for me,
You shine upon my face.
