*Pastor’s Note: For the next several weeks, I am going to try and showcase one of my favorite Contemporary Christian poets for that whole week. I am starting off this series with a dear Sister-in-Christ, Kathy Boecher, with some artwork by her husband Paul.
Sister Kathy has a WordPress site, so the link to her site and to the individual poem used will be linked in the post. She has years of poetry and Paul has many, many wonderful paintings showcased on her site. Please visit them and let them know you stopped by. As always, Glory to God for all of the creative gifts He gives so bountifully. God Bless!

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Why is it when we come in prayer
We just don’t have the words to share?
The struggles still continue on,
Our hopes diminish and are gone.
We lift our voices, but we fear
That God’s too far away to hear.
We grow impatient and cannot wait
We think our problems aren’t that great.
Our ego soon gets in the way.
We think that we don’t have to pray,
But God knows all our needs and cares;
He wants to hear our inmost prayers.
He sends His spirit to our side,
To speak in words we cannot hide.
He goes to God to intercede,
In royal language does He plead.
So take your troubles to the Lord.
Don’t worry over the right word.
He loves to hear from you each day.
Don’t feel inadequate – just pray!
