6-22-15 Call

calling out

In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God:

and he did hear my voice out of his temple,

and my cry did enter into his ears.

2 Samuel 22:7 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank God you have the Lord that you can call

When in distress and frantic for His aid.

Be sure that He will hear you when you fall;

He understood your voice each time you prayed.

Don’t be afraid to seek the Savior’s help

When all seems lost and you have gone astray.

You may feel like a homeless, helpless whelp,

But call upon the Lord though you dismay.

There never is a time when Christ won’t hear;

If you are His you’re linked eternally.

The groanings of your heart in pain or fear

Within the grace of God will set you free.

Your cries will reach the temple of the Lord

You will not be unheard nor worse ignored.

2-3-15 He Hears You

A-Prayer-For-You

Incline to Heaven both your head and heart;

It matters not the place or circumstance.

The only thing that counts is that you start;

A dialogue with God’s not happenstance.

The Lord is listening to every prayer

Regardless if you form a single word;

The groanings of your soul He is aware,

The achings of your heart have all been heard.

You think that God is mum – don’t be deceived!

He’s talking to you now; don’t use your ears.

He answers every prayer that you’ve conceived.

Just practice listening; your spirit hears.

The Lord receives your prayers both large and small

He loves to hear you talk to Him at all.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The LORD hath heard my supplication;

the LORD will receive my prayer.

Psalm 6:9 KJV
