Ever Patiently ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Sometimes when we pray,
we want an instant result
and if we do not get it . . .
we take it as an insult.

So we become disillusioned,
for many of us think
that the chain of prayer
is some kind of magic link.

But, God isn’t a genie,
who grants our every wish
nor a leprechaun with a pot . . .
of gold to make us rich.

Instead, we must be diligent,
and in our prayers persevere
not letting our disappointment
with God’s stillness to interfere.

Sometimes when we pray,
we want answers instantly
so if God has you waiting . . .
do so, ever patiently!

Psalm 66:20

“Blessed be God,
which hath not turned
away my prayer,
nor his mercy from me.”
