Priorities

Hands clasped in prayer

So much that’s new

So much to do

So much to say

So much to pray

Syllabic Verse

Take time to pray

Prayer is man’s greatest power!

W. Clement Stone

Time to Pray

I got up early one morning

and rushed right into the day;

I had so much to accomplish

that I didn’t have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me,

and heavier came each task.

“Why doesn’t God help me?” I wondered.

He answered, “You didn’t ask.”

I wanted to see joy and beauty,

but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;

I wondered why God didn’t show me.

He said, “But you didn’t seek.”

I tried to come into God’s presence;

I used all my keys at the lock.

God gently and lovingly chided,

“My child, you didn’t knock.”

I woke up early this morning,

and paused before entering the day;

I had so much to accomplish

that I had to take time to pray.

On a City Sidewalk

Holding hands in prayer

God gave me an chance to pray for you

Today. A stranger whom I now know as

Lori. Twas a chance meeting.

God put me there in front of

You sitting in the cold,

Eyes filled with tears,

Homeless yet

Knew Jesus

And He

You

Etheree

God Bless You Lori. “He is the “God Who Sees You” and He will help you.

Good Deeds

Daisy, flower, hand
Taking time to show you care

Offering up a sincere prayer, 

Meeting a strangers need,

Doing a small kindly deed,

Sometimes means a whole lot more

Than lots of money given to the poor

Do something small for the least 

Let God multiply it into a feast
