Validating Word

The word was written, and the written word cites
All that is needed to validate wrong and right.
It speaks, proclaims, warns, and praises,
And answers all the questions it raises.
It’s well thought out to make you think,
And helps you find what it draws you to seek.
It is the work of its mighty Author,
And delivers on all that it offers.
It is the scroll, the account, and the record
Of Jesus Christ Our Lord.
Take a moment to walk through the pages.
It is life’s guidebook for all ages.

Believing In Our Prayers

Believing in our prayers to God
is essential to their outcome,
even if as with Zacharias,
God chooses to answer some.
For as the prayer was answered
and John would be his son,
Gabriel told him his unbelief
would cause him to be struck dumb.
He could not speak or share
his good news of God’s gift.
He would have to wait
until the curse did lift.
Mary, however, believed
in something not possible with man.
But she knew with God,
nothing is impossible by His hand.
She was counted blessed
as Gabriel shared the news
that Jesus would be her son.
He was come to save the Jews.
Believe in God when you pray
and in what you pray for.
Give faith and belief
to honor our mighty Lord.
