NEW ORLEANS

So sad the cries we hear repeated

Again and again on the news,

“My child is missing” or “He was last seen”

“On a roof” or “I have no clues.”

.

.

One woman trying to hold back tears

Valiant attempt but soon gave in.

“My son is missing” finally broke down!

Tears that she could no way begin—

.

.

To hold back!  And I really do not care

Whether red, yellow, black, or white,

Big or skinny it does not matter

For all are precious in His sight!

.

.

And if the Lord cares then we should, too.

But what can I do?  I cannot go!

So much we can do!  Have you ever thought

Of prayer?  We cannot being to know—

.

.

The power contained in this simple act.

And He has commanded, “Pray always.”

“With all prayer and supplication” and

He will answer all those who pray!

.

.

“Ask and it shall be given,” He promised!

Do we believe His word is true?

“Pray without ceasing,” yes, He commanded!

It is not the simplest thing to do!

.

.

“Pray with all supplication”, not easy!

Have you ever done it or tried?

A need realistic so heavy it brought you

To your knees, you broke down and cried?

.

.

You do not know the meaning of prayer, if not

If you have never fasted or given

Yourself to fill in this unselfish purpose

If not by the Spirit driven!

.
