Great Prayers Made Britain Great! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Man's prayers were blessed in times gone by
And these made Britain great!
The Union Jack was flying high
With cause to celebrate...
The King James Bible set the tone,
Translating Scriptures well,
To show how Jesus could atone
And save lost souls from Hell...
Great prayers were prayed and hymns declared
The Gospel Truth and more
And wisdom helped Man stay prepared
When peace was turned to war...
Then days of prayer were sacred things,
Appointed and decreed,
So we could seek the King of Kings
In such sad times of need...
But if we don't take time to pray,
God won't make Britain great,
Nor grant us light to lead the way...
Or miracles create...
Stand in the gap, beseech the Lord,
Strive for the nation still,
Bring humble hearts with one accord,
In service to God's will...
Then surely, it shall come to pass,
Revival Heaven-sent,
When Britain's seen to be first class,
Through time in prayer well spent...
