Those That Pray

This was written for all of my dear family and friends who have gotten me through many trials and continue to do so with their love, support, and prayer.

Those That Pray

When the road begins to wind
And I'm not sure of the way
I can look behind and see
God has sent help through those that pray

For my family and my friends
Get me through the fear
That around the corner lies
Trials I cannot bear

The love and the support
The friends and family
Are blessings from above
The trek becoming easy

I begin to see I'm not alone
That no matter what lies there
I can turn the corner, head up high
Knowing those beside me care

Lord, I thank you now
For the gifts that you have given
For the support you provide on earth
The loved ones sent from heaven

Daily Talk

Close to God, I must stay
To make it through each and every day
For the burdens seem to weigh me down
Causing me to wear a frown

But through God's Son, I can walk
If I remember my daily talk
The prayers lifted up in His Holy Name
Holding power to send walking, the lame

Tread by my side, Oh Lord of lords
Helping my faith to not get bored
Talk to me now, Oh King of kings
Causing my heart of joy to sing

The Cross Carried

The crowd did cry for him to die
They wanted an innocent crucified
They didn't want to see His love
The truth He spoke from the one above

Scourged, thorns crowned upon his head
A heavy cross carried, gall He was fed
Three times He fell, but never gave in
Knowing without Him, we'd be severed by sin

The cross He carried, upon He was raised
Dying, only to come back the third day
Carrying our sin to suffer in hell
From us He desires for us to tell

The truth of what is meant by the cross
So that no one soul will be lost
All of us sinners who could never earn
The greatest gift given so we won't burn

With an ounce of faith, Our souls are saved
Forevermore paradise because He gave
His life, His son, to a world full of sin
So accept Him now, let your new life begin

I've joined a writer's group at my church. One of the assignment's that I chose was to complete the phrase, "The door creaked open and I saw...";so, here's what came out:

An Open Door

The door creaked open and I saw
Beauty surrounding, nothing dull
White as snow, the light did shine
Behind the door, with an open mind

One can see the King of kings
The Lord that makes the angels sing
The ray of hope surrounding life
Where sin has crawled in, causing strife

The peace that's felt when God is near
Amidst a world that's filled with fear
The strength required to get one through
When obstacles bombard, options few

The peace, the hope, the ray of sun
The white light and the strength that's won
Found inside the heart's open door
Of a believer whose life is forevermore
