We pray for all kinds of things but we do not realize that sometimes we simply need to pray for him.

I Am!


I prayed to God for comfort for I felt alone and empty.

I prayed for words from Heaven, Words that would serve to reassure me.

I prayed to feel the touch of his hand gently resting on my shoulder

I prayed God would give me eternal life but, alas I just grew older.

I prayed to God and Prayed to God for some signal from above

I only ask for reassurance that I could know his love.

His silence cut through me like a knife and seemed to drive my soul asunder.

I tried to grasp his hand in mine to comfort me through the lightning and the thunder.

Then one fine day I realized why God had kept so still.

He was allowing me to search for him and learn to understand his will.

For he does not promise earthly riches, comforts or even peace on earth

What he offers we must find or we will never know its worth.

I ask of God and ask of God but I never really knew his ways

One day, I asked no more of God, but promised to live for him through all my days.

I would love the Lord with all my heart and love my neighbor and my friends

I found that his love is eternal love which means it never ends.

Excellent write Lew and interesting that there were to poems of the same title back to back. I also found that when you said “I prayed God would give me eternal life but, alas I just grew older” When you truly believed, eternal life you did receive. Great inspirational piece.

Well you got your answer. People pray for earthly things: God wants to give us eternal life: He prepares us; then comes the test: He keeps after us until we pass the test - "This is eternal life; to know the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent"
