America Needs A President Who Relıes On Faith And Prayer


AMERICA = 2012

The clean-up of the housing crash and bust
Is by far not over or recovering yet.
Painfully we suffer the misjudgments of men
Greedy for profit and free from regret.

Far too many are out of work and looking for jobs
More than any time since the Great Depression of the past.
Food and fuel cost more every day that we live
As the futures of America and the World are cast.

A true measure of change is our only hope
We must turn to prayer seeking God's answers to renew.
Honesty, humor, faith and integrity
Are all we need to practice and pursue.

Life has always been Heaven's test of resolve
To teach us we are never in total control.
It is God who decides the outcomes of sin
As the consequences of unfaithfulness take their toll.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN POEM

There's no better time to ponder Abraham Lincoln
Than a presidential election year like now.
From his humble beginnings in a one-room log cabin
He became our 16th president and here's how.

Abraham was a true believer and worshiper of God
And was always aware of His presence night or day.
He knew that evil shadows every woman and man
And before every decision he would meditate and pray.

The same so should we with both heart and soul
Ask God for His Devine answers in time of need.
As we face life's problems and the weakness of man
For jealousy, anger, hate, lust, love and greed.

ELECTION = 2012 POEM

With looming worries about jobs, homes and healthcare
College debt, Afghanistan, terrorism and disease.
Americans seek clear options this November
As we pray for those we vote for on our knees.

America needs a president who relies on faith and prayer
One who can lead by example, servitude and more.
Someone who loves our freedom and heroes of the past
Who inspires us like none we have known before.

Whoever wins the final vote when tallied
We pray they succeed and restore America's glory.
The time has come for all of us to rise up and change
As freedom, love and commitment become our story.

If President George Washington was alive and well
And spoke to America of troubles we face today.
I wonder what he might faithfully suggest
And would we heed to anything he would say?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
