*815 Good Morning God - Poem by John Knight

Good Morning God - I bring to you my day
Good Morning God - please hear me as I pray
There are so many things I want to share
There are so many people in my prayer.
I'm praying for my Mum Lord - who is sad
She wants to be Heaven with my Dad
I'm praying for my Brother - got no work
Also for my Sister - married to a Jerk
I'm praying for myself Lord - I need a guide
Yes - someone just like you Lord - by my side
I'm praying in the morning - it's 7: 30 here
I'm sending you a greeting - loud and clear
I'll pray my prayer in simple words so that......
You will know exactly where I'm at! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Good Morning Lord - it's now another day
Good Morning Lord - I like to start this way
Yes I must start each brand new day with prayer
I need to know for certain that you're there.
It must have been so easy with a million
How do you cope in Heaven with six billion?
Is there Word for Windows set for Heavenspeak
Are there cyber Angels to give each prayer a tweak?
How do you cope with millions - who pray on the same day
In six thousand different toungues - each in their own way?
Please excuse all these questions Lord - but Oh....
Just how prayer works - I really need to know.
But please just let me say Lord - I can see
I know you've heard and answered prayer for me.

Good Evening Lord - I've had a busy day
But I have felt you with me all the way.
I prayed for peace at lunch time - for my Boss
A really lovely man - but can get cross
He moaned because production was so low
But I said to him - look Alan don't you know
I have prayed about this old production line
And the Lord has told me everything is fine.
God said - set the line and let it go slower
So of course production will be lower
But the quality of product will be best
And the workers on the line will not be stressed
We had time to take a little break for rest
So in the end then - everyone is blest.

Good Morning Lord - Hello it's me again
I'm late today its nearly half past ten.
It's Saturday so there's no work today
So it should give me much more time to pray.
I have to visit someone whose child has passed away
I want to go - but Oh Lord - I don't know what to say.
'Just tell them that I love them - and she is safe with me'
I heard the Lord - so sweetly say to me
And so I went and told them - it gave them such relief
To know their child was safe - gave joy beyound belief.
I've just shared two stories - of how God answers prayer
Which illustrate the fact He's always there.
He knows our fears - He knows what makes us sad
He brings out hearts relief and makes us glad.

Do you feel discouraged - burdened with a load of care
Just look hrough the shadows - God is always there.
Tell Him about you troubles - tell Him how you feel
You will find your burdens - lghten as you kneel.

    this is really beautiful and inspiring. whenever we are talking to God, we just have to say things as simple as they are and let ourselves have a child's faith in God. (Report) Reply

    Good Morning John, i'm in love with your rhyme scheme.
    It shows your talent that you are the supreme.

    this is a very nice piece..i like the presentation of this piece as prayer...we must be aware of the things happening in our lives..pray? is so the morning, , we should be thankful that after a long sleep, comes another day.....and in the evening, we give thanks for the works well done...

    this time, where the world is having crisis, we should always think GOD, pray GOD and work honestly...if i were to be asked, this is a very nice prayer poem..happy valentine........smileeeeeeeeeee
