My Prayer Poem by Joe Filipiak

My Prayer

Rating: 5.0

I've got some requests Lord,
I hope you don't mind,
just a short list,
if you be so kind.

It's not in any order,
I just jotted them down;
things that need fixing,
as I look around.

I've got friends who are sick
with cancer and such,
please heal them Lord,
with your loving touch.

Give them the strength Lord,
to beat their disease
Cure my dear friends Lord,
I'm begging you please.

Our country's divided,
left against right,
nothing to agree on,
all they do is fight.

Please bring them together,
show them the way,
to do what's right Lord,
for the USA.

People are suffering,
in countries war torn,
Some have known war,
since the day they were born.

No food, no water,
the ground for a bed.
Living in anguish,
and nothing is said.

Persecutions go on,
people suffer and die,
for what they believe,
and no one asks why.

Terrorists, drug lords,
despotic regimes,
creating nightmares,
and crushing dreams.

I know You see it,
the suffering and pain,
intervene dear Lord,
give them peace again.

Your poor are suffering,
they're everywhere.
Children go hungry,
and have nothing to wear.

Help them Lord,
you know their needs,
ease their grief,
please heed my pleas.

Families escaping,
with nowhere to go,
just clothes on their backs,
and children in tow.

Help them Lord,
make someone see,
and put an end,
to this tragedy.

Homeless people,
out on the street,
no place to call home,
they have nothing to eat.

They look for handouts,
from those who walk by;
most people go past,
without blinking an eye.

Some are veterans,
who struggle each day,
with terrible dreams,
that won't go away.

Ease their suffering,
and ease their pain,
help them get back,
on their feet again.

Bless my friends,
and my family too.
This dear Lord,
I ask of you.

Thank you Lord
