*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.
GOD ANSWERS PRAYER
I believe God answers prayers,
The big ones and the small.
He listens to our every plea,
He wants to bare them all.
He hears the many prayers we say,
And knows when we can’t cope.
He takes our desperate cries for help,
And fills us up with hope.
He wants to mend our broken heart,
And take away our sorrow.
He wants to help us laugh again,
And bring joy to our tomorrow.
Just talk to God and you will find,
He always listens, always cares.
He longs to fill your life with joy,
Say a prayer, He’s always there.
