Touching His Garment

by Shirley Denton
(Dayton, Ohio)

At the wake of day I began to pray

many burdens I had to share

my eyes filled with tears as I called out to Him

fears consumed my mind

no peace could I find

Lord I know you are here

you never forsake me

when I'm in need

Oh merciful father if I could just touch your garment

rivers of healing waters would rush over my wounded body

Stay near me Lord for I'm weak and you are strong

I shall praise you in my sickness till night consumes the day

holding onto faith with every breath I pray

Touching his garment

A ver beautiful poem I can relate to this one. Sometime ago I prayed & prayed for divine intervention because I had no control over the negative situation that had befallen me.For several months I became bitter & cynical which is alien to my nature. I had lost my faith & turned away from God. But God answered my prayers & I believe good will overcome evil.There are more good people in the world than evil.
Your words of wisdom & lovely poetry give me such comfort. Many many thanks.

Hello Shirley Denton!

The poem is just beautiful.
I have tears in my eye.
Just like a prayer which I uttered yesterday when I felt a pain in my body.

Please keep writing.You have no idea how it is going to encourage people like me.

God bless you richly.
