The Power Of Prayer

Read 730 Times
Life without a purpose, is barren indeed
There can't be any harvest, unless you plant the seed.
There cannot be attainment, unless we have a goal
And man is just a robot, unless he has a soul.

If we send no ships out, then no ships will come in
And unless there is a contest, then nobody can win.
For games can't be won, unless they are played
And prayers can't be answered unless they are prayed.

So whatever is wrong with your life today?
You'll find a solution, if you kneel down and pray.
Not just for pleasure, enjoyment and health
And not just for honours, prestige and wealth.

But pray for a purpose, to make life worth living
And pray for the joy of unselfish giving.
For great is your gladness and rich your reward
When you make life's purpose, the love of the Lord.
