  1. 1. A Mother's Love Prayer

    I wrote this poem years ago when my three daughters were young, praying to God to give me wisdom, knowledge and faithfulness and hoping to be an influence my children might look up to.

    Lord, help me be the Mother
    You've chosen me to be,
    One parent with a loving heart,
    The mother of my three.

  3. 2. Teach Me, Lord

    Prayer is a powerful thing. It is our direct line of communication to God. Through prayer we ask for help and guidance. We thank Him for our blessings. Through prayer we talk to God as we would any other friend. He wants and waits to hear from us because He loves us. He wants to teach us how to live in His image.

    Teach me, Lord,
    What I don't know.
    Show me which way
    And where to go.

  5. 3. God Bless You, Little One

    My name is Ilona, and I wrote this poem to dedicate to my cousin's daughter who was celebrating her Christening. I read it in the church while the priest played Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It was very touching.

    A baby is a gift, a blessing that makes our lives worthwhile,
    As they complete us, give us purpose and always manage to make us smile.

    Their cuddles, snuggles, and soft kisses can brighten up any day.

  6. 4. This Brand New Day

    Each new day is a gift from God. It's only fitting for us to lean on Him.

    This brand new day I go in faith,
    But I know not what lies in wait,
    So dear God, this morning I pray,
    Take control and lead the way.

  7. 5. Dear God, I Have A Prayer Today

    • By Vivian Rogers
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2015

    I wrote this poem back on 11/11/99, during a time that I was a young single mom raising two boys, and we were going through a transition of being without their father. I wanted God to keep that peace that I needed to guide them into being successful young men, which they are today. I also wanted to stay on the straight and narrow path that God was taking me on.

    Dear God, I have a prayer today.
    Please Lord, do not let me go astray.
    Teach me to share your love with others.
    Give me peace to spread to my sisters and brothers.

  9. 7. A Letter To God

    Another sleepless night, alone in my cell, reaching out to God for comfort. I have been drug free for a year and a half now and hope that if there are people who can relate to my poems, they won't give up. The struggle is real, but so is God! Hang in there!

    Dear God,

    Can you hear me?
    Can you please take my hand?

  12. 10. MaMa Said A Prayer

    It is about a child's struggle in life and how it's hard to let them find their way.

    She bowed her head, closed her eyes,
    As she began to pray.
    She said, "Dear God, watch over her.
    Keep her in Your tender care today."

  14. 12. A Gentle Breeze

    • By Laurie Swartzfager
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011

    I wrote this poem in a time of my life when I was feeling insecure. I needed confirmation that God was still in my life. I was looking at my life in dismay, feeling lonely and worried. I felt inspired by prayer to talk to God and write down my thoughts while sitting on my porch. Words came to mind as God spoke to me, and I put these words down on paper. I hope this poem inspires you as well.

    As I sit here all alone admiring the view of an early sunrise,
    I tilt my head back and close my eyes.
    A soft gentle breeze crosses my face.
    I look around and enjoy the quietness of God's peace and the soft gentle pace.

  15. 13. These Ol' Shoes

    • By Lori K. Barber
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015

    I wrote this as a prayer. The shoes are a symbol of my struggles and strength. My faith will lead me out of worn shoes to a place where no struggles or worries or shoes exist.

    Lord, it's a mountain you gave me to climb,
    and I've had my share of mountains behind.
    Each time I've climbed I depended on faith
    to guide me along with each step I take.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2017

    I'm always trying to please people around me. I feel alone, but now I want to do something for me. I want to create a purpose and an inspiration for myself. I ask the Lord to help me, and I know he will. I have to find myself when everyone puts up obstacles in my life. Now is the time. I'm tired of being fake.

    I want to be brave.
    I want to be smart.
    I want to be saved.
    I want a new start.

  20. 18. My Prayer

    I wanted to write a poem that I could recite each day, a prayer to be thankful and a prayer to grow in Christianity, a prayer to help me do what our Lord tells us to do because sometimes each of us can lose focus.

    Father, I thank you for the days and nights,
    And thank you for this warm morning light.
    For food and shelter, for your loving care,
    And for all in this world that is good and fair.

  21. 19. Prayer For God's Help

    Sometimes I worry a lot about different issues that crop up in my life and forget that God is with me, waiting for me to call to him for help. I wrote this poem to remind myself to seek God's help whenever I'm faced with a problem. Nothing is too big or too small for Him...He is ever ready to hear each of our concerns and to come to our rescue.

    Lord, when I worry about the bills,
    Knowing I don't have money-making skills,
    Please be my complete provider,
    As well as my ever present minder.

    My name is John Raines and I'm a recovering alcoholic/addict with a little over 16 years of continuous sobriety. I wrote this poem a few days ago while experiencing a spiritual low. Writing the poem helped lift me out of the funk I was in and refocus my attention on God.
