Prayer – A Poem

Prayer finds me
seeking You for
comfort and healing
here on my knees

As I come to You
my mind is turned
to others who need
what I seek for me

Immanuel, You
are with me now
as I focus on You
instead of my pain

Never to forsake me
You have promised
I find it is true
when You I seek

  3. My heart aches some at this, because the poem is so genuine and comes from a reality of what you know and live. God bless you, Linda, as you combine the reality of your pain with honest prayer to your Lord, the Maker and Healer of all. love and prayers!
