A prayer for God

Lord you are mighty loving and have a masterful plan.
As a sinner and a carnal man, I hurt for humanity, I truly understand.
When I let the devil control my inner thoughts,
I remember Jesus, the Holy Spirit tells me His death hasn't gone for naught.

Problems have entered my mind Jesus is powerful and without Him guiding me, I can't win.
So I pray Lord that you'll aid me if it's your will and not let this carnal sin in.
Your statutes your commandments I will follow till I die.
Alone without you aiding me I will truly fail, and my soul will wail and cry.

Asking in faith guide me to where you want me to be.
I'm asking for help please help me spiritually.
The worlds evil master has recently tempted my faith.
I alone know that with you, if you will, will guide my writtings and make you great.

I fear that you have deserted me as a carnal man and I'm loosing my path.
The fear of loosing my faith will incur your wrath.
God you are my rock with you I cannot fail.
So asking in prayer if it is your will, we together will prevail.

God the father has blessed this nation called America.
Has America stopped to bless you? exalting your power?
What belongs to the devil let hin be cast to the eternal fire.
Make your people want your everlasting love, this is what I desire.

    Robert, the devil is always waiting to take over our free will and lead us astray. If we keep Christ in our hearts, e stay on the right path. I am sorry to hear you have been struggling with your health too, Robert. My illness is degenerative, but I'm holding my own. You will be in my prayers until you recover. Love and blessings, Carolyn

    Excellent prayer and a testimonial to your faith. We have all questioned our realtionship with the Almighty and been filled with doubts. The truth is, what God has placed in the palm of his hand no one can remove. Only one unforgiveable sin exists. When Christ was crucified he took on all the sins of the world past present and future, Forgiveness is needs only to be requested. Sorry your poem provoked a lot of thought.
