If You Ever Doubt


Prayer that lifts you up,
Prayer that gives you wings,
Prayer that fills your heart
and makes your spirit sing,
Prayer that takes you over,
Prayer that brings you through,
There's no need for answers,
just know He's holding you ...
And if you ever doubt
that Jesus loves and cares,
Just open up your heart
and come to Him in prayer.

Prayer that makes you laugh,
Prayer that clears your eyes,
Prayer that sets you free
from all your fears and lies,
Prayer that like none other
can prove His word is true,
There's no need for answers,
just know He's holding you ...
And if you ever doubt
that Jesus loves and cares,
Just open up your heart
and come to Him in prayer.

This is such a beautiful piece! You're so right, theres nothing that can fix things than coming to the Lord in prayer and just becoming totally submissive to Him. He will make all things work that way. Thank you for sharing this, I needed a reminder.

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

LoveBug,

What you have said about prayer is so true and profound, everything does work out for the better when we come to the Lord in prayer. So happy to have reminded you of something as very special as prayer.

Noah,

Thank you for your big hugs.... and many smiles.  Glad to have been an encouragement to you my dear friend in Christ.  May we both spend quality time alone with Jesus in prayer and be uplifted and held ever so close in His Love and Grace.  God bless.

Joyce,

Always a privilidge to share the beautiful "good news" that we are held in the loving arms of God and that He is always present in our prayers.  God bless you my poet friend and again thank you for your short but sweet comments.

So true, read this after posting my latest poem.."On Wings of Faith", seems as if we were having the same train of thought.

Yes, I do believe that you are right... both of us have had our thoughts on the wings of prayer lately.  It's beautiful when God allows our poetry to confirm one another like this.  Again, thanks for your kind words.

Did I ever need this today! Seems I never doubt our Lord's love, just wonder how some of this works into into it. Knowing some of what you've experienced gives your encouraging words even more weight.  

The simplicity of child-like faith comes across so clearly in your beautiful post.  Things seem to get so complicated, I sometimes forget.  Thank you, Bob, for reminding me.

This was INCREDIBLE, Bob!!  I know this one has been around for a couple years, but apparently God knew that I would be here today and had a feeling I needed a little reminder!  Your words are so beautiful!!  

With love in Christ,
