READ THE SCRIPTURES

I cried, I prayed then faith took hold!

I thought, “Perhaps a wee bit bold,”

But no!  I realized we were told;

To boldly come!  (Hebrews 4:16)

.

.

“Faith” the “substance,” this we know,

“Of things we hope for,” here below,

“The evidence” will surely show

As we boldly come!  (Hebrews 11:1)

.

.

We may not see immediately

The “evidence” of “faiths” decree,

But as we pray persistently

And boldly come—

.

.

He honors us and then the song

Of victory we sing along!

The song may not ‘sound off’ too strong

But boldly come!  (Hebrews 10:19)

.

.

The enemy presents his dirge

Of subtle doubts, we feel the surge!

But faith then counters with the urge

To boldly come!

.

.

We boldly come and make our plea

Accept by faith and constantly

Keep praying then unceasingly

And pray some more!  (Colossians 4:2)

.

.

We are promised answers as we pray!

And so throughout the doubt-filled day

Perhaps with fasting as we pray

And pray some more!  (Ephesians 6:18)

.

.

The attitude of prayer persists

Of this the life in Christ consists!

The call to prayer, do not resist!

“Abide in Christ.”

.

.

We are scripture-bound to ask, believe,

Improbable to doubt conceive! (*)

This message from The Lord receive;

“Abide in Me.”  (John 15:4)

.

.

(*) He will do His part and answer.

.

.

(Look up and read the scriptures!  For crying out loud

do you expect me to do all the work?  That is what I

thought, King James version, of course.  What else is there?)
