God, Are you There?

I'm way down here! You're way up there!

Are You sure You can hear my faint, faltering prayer?
For I'm so unsure of just how to pray--

To tell you the truth, God, I don't know what to say...
I just know I am lonely and vaguely disturbed,
Bewildered and restless, confused and perturbed...

And they tell me that prayer helps to quiet the mind
And to unburden the heart for in stillness we find
A newborn assurance that Someone does care
And someone does answer each small sincere prayer!

Good Afternoon Mimi,
I have been offline for a couple of days and am trying to catch up with everyone this afternoon. I hope to be able to do a post in the morning tho. "THANK YOU" for being concerned. We didn't get anything Severe here where I live, but it was all around us tho. "PRAISE GOD" for watching over us and protecting us. That is a beautiful and touching poem. "THANK YOU" for sharing it with us. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

I feel, but I know God hears..and
loves us dearly.

This is beautiful. Sometimes it seems like it is impossible for God to hear me especially when I think about how many of us are here on Earth that He has to keep track of, but down in my heart I know that I know that I know that He does hear me and He loves me!

Blessings to you! Sharon

It's been quite a while since I heard a Helen Steiner Rice poem. How sweet a poet she was (is?). Thanks for posting this, Mimi. Makes me think of my mom who loved this poet best of all.
