Change Us Lord

by Shirley Denton
(Dayton, Ohio)



Lord can you hear me when I pray

so many troubles come my way

sickness and death keep me from my rest

upon my bed I toss around my mind filled with torment

the world has no compassion or dignity

The news talks about killings and children starving

it plays in my head night and day

I feel so helpless because it's such an ugly sight

Lord I'm not complaining

just need your help

take away this ugly mess and let me rest

let your mighty spirit move today

reach out to the needy and change the hearts of men

But if needless children must die

I will cry for them till my eyes go dry

I try real hard Lord but I can't change a thing

so it's up to you Lord

I pray not for myself but for our world

direct us on the perfect path and help us not to stray

touch our hearts and fill us with compassion and dignity

Oh merciful father I pray

by: Sarah

this poem is amazing! wow. love how you used the words, and really love what your saying. i really pray that God changes America, and turns us back to the right way, so we can still be the hope for people all across the world. but what so many do not understand is the only way to turn around is through Him.
