An Original Work / April 4, 2018 I pray to the Lord When thoughts trouble my mind. I put my trust in Him. Then, peace I do find. I have no control Over what others do. They all have the freedom To others subdue. It pains me to watch How some lie and they trick. Their plans are so sneaky. Their words are so slick. They hate what is good, And they love what is wrong. Their deeds are so evil. To God, not belong. They talk about God As though he is their friend. But, it is words only. On him, not depend. They follow the flesh, And do all that they will. Their lusts now control them. Their vows not fulfill. They need to repent Of their sins unto God, Forsake all their idols, And on their knees bow. And, God will forgive Them of all of their sin, When they believe Jesus, And let Him come in. So, I pray for them. But, ‘til they bow the knee, Their sins they continue, Temptation not flee. And, it breaks my heart, That from faith, they depart, And they won’t let God give To them a new start. So… I pray to the Lord When thoughts trouble my mind. I put my trust in Him. Then, peace I do find.
