Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
When we see, all around us
The Evidence of ungodliness
Instead of just shaking our heads,
By Faith, We continue, before returning to dust,
To seek God and His righteousness
By praying–never stopping to talk and listen,
Acknowing Him for Who He is,
Thanking Him for creating who We are,
And pleading for changes of many hearts,
For Those from whom His Word have departed.
God, of our fathers and mothers old and new,
Create in all a desire to live for You.
Remove the scales from blinded eyes to truth,
Unstop the ears, making plain the truth to our youth,
So, they will be able to make Godly decisions in life,
No matter what wrongs they see or hear, or all the strife,
One might endure in order to Please You, not others.
Give those of us whose time may be limited to teach,
Your Word, without compromise, or sugarcoating,
To all show Them the better way, of living, Your Plans
For all for a future with hope–no need for ungodliness,
That serves as a rope that chokes out life without Christ,
And mocks all who live in opposition to God, dangling,
Daring the enslaved to break free, influencing death,
Naturally and Spiritually–when Truth is not received.
Help us to Change the Environment in which we live,
Constantly praying, teaching and preaching, as we give,
Our all to save lives and change directions of those who are lost,
Leading to salvation, to God through Jesus who hung on that cross,
Willing to die for all, sacrificing Himself so We all could find,
Peace and joy, health and happiness, in Him and Him alone.
