When it’s a conversation and not a prayer......

Updated: Sep 26, 2023

A prayer is for far away

A conversation is for close

Where you want to be .....

When you need a favor

When your heart clamors for touch

But touch doesn’t work

Hesitantly first

Then more often with confidence such that

Your wisdom some day

Lets Him have his way

Oh, happy Day

This will be the day

When your every prayer

Bathed in the expectation

Of his wise purpose

Is perfectly answered

And then you will

Bask in the comfort

Of His comfort

Protecting you from your
