Prayer Cannot Be Restricted

Prayer Cannot Be Restricted

Prayer cannot be restricted
When it comes to calling on God
His reality has a holy essence
Proof of it in God's Word
The Spirit wrenches out prayer
When we're in our direst need
And somehow God touches base with us
And gives us His grace indeed

I have sensed His presence at times
After I have prayed
Knowing beyond a shadow of doubt
He heard the petitions I made
Then watched the unraveling of His will
As I counted each circumstance
Realizing God's plans had been well laid
It wasn't just happenchance

And covering me there with His love
I felt such a settling
With the peace that passeth understanding
That only God can bring
And my heavy burden lightened
For I know that He really cares
So thankful that I took each burden
To the Lord And left them there

Maybe you're on the brink of praying
Come nowunto the Lord
Pour out the need of your heart
He longs to hear each word
And your burdens that are heavy laden
Will quietly disappear
When you seek the will of the Father
His mercy will draw near!

    No one can restrict the prayer. This automatically flows towards God with much devotion. Lord gives us his love through grace. A nice philosophical poem is beautifully penned...10
