Heavenly Father, hear my prayer

I am so sorry, for not listening;
For not, seeking your word.

For asking for your help,
And not hearing a word.

Or perhaps, ignoring,
What I did not want to hear,
But I thank you dear Lord,
For saving me, from me.

What I wanted was not good enough,
Compared to your plan.
No, not good enough, he was not the man.

I wanted his comfort, his embrace,
I wanted his love, his smiling face.

But I know you have a plan,
there is a man for me,
hand picked by you,
if I am willing to see.

So, with that said, I thank you Lord God.
Sometimes the unanswered,
are the best answered prayers.

    Hi Kimberly - A nice frank prayer poem - God always hears but we don't always get the answer we want. Remember God always knows best. Also remember you have a Guardian Angel watching out just for you 24/7. You are also blessed to be living in Austn TX - the most beautiful city in the whole of the USA. Every blessing - Love in poetry - JOHN. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
