Of Prayer


I have friends far away that need our prayers right now; lots and lots of it. God knows what we have need of even before we ask of Him, yet oh, how He desires that we seek Him and ask. ‘Ask and it will be given you, seek and ye will find, knock and it will be opened unto you.’ Matt. 7:7

It travels through ramparts of doubt and despair
It lifts us from quagmires of fear
There is no distance that it cannot reach
It draws distant loved ones near

It moves, unhindered by evil’s intent
It scatters the schemes of distrust
It fills the unknown with God-rendered peace
As satan torments this world’s dust

It carries us through the dark valley of ‘wait’
It comforts as He intercedes
For we know God’s answers are never late
Because He knows our uttermost needs

Of mountain and desert, of vast rolling sea
There is no height and no depth
That prayer cannot touch in the instant of thought
And God will tend to all the rest

Please, could you pray for 'them' and their need. God knows what we do not.
