Simple Prayer

Post  Irv Everett on Thu 28 Feb 2008, 4:33 pm

Simple Prayer


I was outside watering my wifeís flowers yesterday.

I looked to the heavens and took a moment to pray.

Lord, it hasnít rained here in quite some time.

And Iíd like to ask, if you are a mind.


Lord, I see that small cloud drifting just over those trees.

But, thank you anyway; they probably need it more than me.

I finished all my watering and rolled up the hose pipe.

I took one more look at the heavens and went in for the night.


My wife called to me a little later, said its sprinkling look outside.

I looked out the window and joy filled me inside.

I had to thank the Good Lord, for I was sure amazed.

God heard my simple prayer and sent some rain my way.


My wife and I stood there and lifted our voices in praise.
And Iím happy to tell you, God still answers prayers these days.

Irv, I have no words to thank you and praise your poem. You write such simple poems yet they have great knowledge. You and Fenny have really got me into poetry. I cannot write but I can appreciate them.

I was afraid to put Poetry Section as many go beyond what is written and blaspheme. But Fenny and you have been a great blessing for this forum and for me. I always enjoy your poems and they are full of knowledge. The more I read, the more I learn and I thank God for sending you to this forum as a blessing to be a guide to us and specially to me.

God bless you and your family

Thank you Daniel for placing a poetry forum on this site; I so enjoy reading all the other things presented here and I do enjoy posting the poetry that GOD has place upon my heart. For I am nothing without GOD; HIM alone should be magnified in all of our lives. Thank you again for allowing HIS glory to be expressed on this site.
