Sometimes When I Pray ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Sometimes when I pray,
it feels like God’s far away
it’s as if He wasn’t there at all
when upon His name I call.

So I cry out even more,
as my requests I implore
hoping God will hear me
as to Him I make my plea.

Sometimes when I pray,
something gets in the way
it’s as if God can’t receive
the prayers to Him I leave.

The silence is deafening,
leaving me wondering
does God really bend His ear
so my prayers He can hear.

Sometimes when I pray,
it’s I, not God who is far away . . .
and I cannot hear His replies
to my beseeching cries!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 17:6

I have called upon thee,
for thou wilt hear me,
O God: incline thine ear
unto me, and hear my speech.
