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 Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
