Do You Ever? - Poem by Richard Merrell

Do you ever fast and pray
One day or maybe two;
Do you fast and pray
And see what God will do?
Do you ever afflict the soul
And go to God in prayer;
Do you ever afflict the soul
And know God's answer there?

Jesus said in Matthew six
'When you fast and pray,
do it not in man's sight
but in a hide-a-way.'

Now what he meant by this
Was, keep it to yourself
Only God will know of it
And you will know God's wealth.
So, if you want to know
A blessing in your way;
Do not hesitate
Start to fast and pray.
