God Takes A Prayer

Faithful saint, on his knees
Imploring,
Fighting for the truth,
Storming the gates of hell.

Faithful saint, on his knees
Tells of his need to God
And God alone.
No one else knows.

Faithful saint, on his knees
Pleads with the King above.
He doesn’t know how
His prayer could be answered,
But he has utter faith
That it will.

Faithful saint, on his knees
Knows of a dire need–
To save a lost soul
From physical death and spiritual.
Perhaps a child.
An orphan who is dying.

God takes a prayer.
He hears a prayer
And stirs the heart of another
with the answer.

Someone across the nation
Who doesn’t even know
The saint upon his knees
Is even now feeling
The gentle nudging of Something Unknown.
The nudging of a Holy God
Who is answering a prayer.

God takes a prayer
And gives it to someone else.
Someone else who has the resources
To go themselves.
Or give.

A soul is burdened
With words to say
Right when they need to be said,
To someone they don’t even know.
“That was an answer to prayer!”
Comes the reply.

God takes a prayer
And orchestrates a happening.
To human eye
We can’t understand why–
But God is answering a prayer.

God takes a prayer
And answers it.

Faithful saint, on your knees,
God is answering your prayer.
Though you may never see
The outcome of your prayers,
Your Father in heaven
Has already taken your prayer
And begun to answer it.

God takes a prayer,
And a miracle occurs.
Circumstances are perfectly arranged
Outside our control.
Hearts are changed.

Sometimes we don’t understand
Why God would choose us
For a certain task,
Or why He would ask a certain thing of us–
God has taken a prayer
And is answering it.

God takes a prayer
And answers it.

(Keep in mind that anything like this that I may post is usually posted in its very raw form. I don’t write them–they write themselves . . . bear with me as I venture into a new road of expression. ;) )
