A Prayer For Help Poem by Joseph Anderson

A Prayer For Help

Rating: 4.7

Dear God, could you reveal thyself
In a way we understand?
Could you make known some way to share
A universal plan?

To long we've wrestled earthly greed
For money, power and fame;
To long we've slain our fellow man,
Quite often in thy name.

On paths we trod to know thy will,
We wandered far astray;
With many faiths and facts unknown,
We stumbled on the way.

Show us a way to clear our heads
From doubts and fears and then
We can become a brotherhood
Of faith, thank you-Amen.

This is not your prayer alone... This is everyone's plea! In our journey towards Faith, we often stumble upon hard rocks of doubt. How we wish God had manifested Himself before the seeking and troubled mankind, instead of allowing us to grope in semi darkness.... But there still has no explanation why He prefers to play the game of Hide n' seek! May be if we search persistent, He might reveal to us as He has done to many....! A very earnest and geuine prayer! !
