GOD ANSWERS PRAYER ~ Sonnet for Sunday !



O MY GOD ~ I'm crying out for help 

This is not a pious exclamation

I mean it ~ I'm really DESPARATE 

Please hear me ~ I'm going down the DRAIN !


Please don't just let Me float downstream 

With the rebellious & indifferent

Please GOD snatch Me out of the current

Set My feet safely on your Blessed Shore !


WOW My GOD that was close one ~ Thank you

For stopping Me going with the Worldly flow

You've set my feet on solid ground

You are my Rock and my Salvation ! 


GOD is the Hope & Salvation



Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN XOX

    I need God to answer my prayer and just show me that he is my friend.


      Thanks for your COMMENT IAN ~ and never lose FAITH ! GOD is always there and always and is always a FRIEND to those that seek HIM ~ AMEN Pray Morning Noon & Night share all your Joy & Pain with GOD and He WILL direct you Paths ~ Praying for you BRIAN (UK)

    • FredPeyer

      Brian, while I am not what you would call a religious person, I do believe in the power of prayers, since prayers are a form of belief. If you believe it, it will happen! Like Jesus said: Ask and you shall be given!

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Thanks FRED for a frank answer ! The last thing GOD want is RELIGIOSITY He just wants Ordinary People like you and to know He is IN CONTROL and on our side. Anyone & Everyone can PRAY ~ anywhere ~ anytime ! Prayer always lifts my Spirit and lessens my Burdens ~ Yours BRIAN

      • Frank Prem

        Crikey Brian. I may be wrong but the woo-hoo seems to have hit the ceiling. And then come back down again.

        All well over there?

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          Well FRANK there is a lot going on Nationally & Internationally ~ BUT ~ GOD is still in CHARGE and through Prayer we can hook into His Power & Love & Peace ~ stop worrying and "Count our Blessings" and start Praising ~ AMEN ~ BRIAN

        • Goldfinch60

          Good write Brian prayers can be so very powerful.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks ANDY ~ Your Presence ~ Prayer ~ Poetry is a great Blessing to us ALL on MPS ~AMEN ~ Yours BRIAN

          • Fay Slimm.

            Prayer has an invincible power and thanks for sharing this with us today Brian.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks FAY for your positive comment ! We do need (from time to time) to be reminded of both the opportunity for PRAYER and the power of PRAYER ~ AMEN ~ Yours as ever BRIAN

            • dusk arising

              Are sure god is a man? Really sure?

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks for the Q DA ! Well we know for sure that Jesus of Nazareth (AD 0 ~ 33) was a MAN ! Th Holy Spirit is of course Gender Neutral. JUDAISM is a Patriarchal Society so culturally JEHOVAH was always described as MASCULINE and this of course is carried over into the New Testament and Christianity. There is of course the VIRGIN MARY (without a doubt a Woman !) who ~ while not a member of the Trinity ~ is a very powerful Female in the Christian Church ! Angels likewise are gender~free. So in essence GOD is both Father & Mother but personally I prefer to call Him Father ~ OK BRIAN

                • dusk arising

                  Theologists now accept jesus was not from nazareth because nazareth did not exist until 300 years after the 'crucifixion'. Jesus was a Nazarean - a sect which were known for their resistence to the occupying Roman army - a sect similar to the IRA or ISIS. Theologists now also accept that the word 'virgin' when assosciated with Mary is a mistranslation. The actual translation means 'woman of marriageable quality'.
                  ~ OK dusk.

                  A fine write Brian. I'm somewhat old-fashioned, though know others even more old-fashioned than me. I can't seem to get on with too-modern Bible versions, e.g. The Message.
                  This is great though, as 'modern' or trendy' language.
                  is it 'Desperate'? There is 'Disparate' which is something else! 'Desparate' seems non-existent.

                  Also *Gets out pen and paper for discussion on: God gives us what we need, but not always what we want. Discuss!*

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    Thanks STEVE ~ I agree ~ The GOOD BOOK says "My GOD shall supply all your NEED" ~ not GREED. BUT would MOI ask GOD for anything I didn't really NEED ? Brian

                  • myself and me

                    It seems your prayer answered. Since God is busy with you, so I shall wait a bit.

                    • orchidee

                      Ooh there's no need to wait! His 'phone line' is always opened and never engaged! Only he could take more than one 'phone call' at a time! heehee.

                      • myself and me

                        Thank you. I hope I did not dial the wrong number.
