Another poem to share with you from Christopher Payne.
I don’t know how it works, Lord, but I’m here with a petition;
I don’t know how it works, Lord, but I’m here to make a prayer
For a loved one with a problem. For a friend in bad condition.
For a soldier who is dying, please be there.
I don’t know if you hear me when I’m pouring out my heart, Lord;
I don’t know if your Heaven reaches here,
But I’m here to take a gamble that I really cannot lose
And I’m ready to take action; please be near.
Will you hear the prayer I offer, if it really is a prayer?
I believe, please help my trembling unbelief;
Will you give the strength I need, Lord, give me faith where faith falls short?
Stay close by me. Do not leave me in my grief.
