Prayers For Our Poets

My friends these are Perilous times. You can see it everywhere, feel it, and for many of us we are experiencing heartache through the loss of a loved one. To add to our troubles, sickness or disease has arrived into our lives, on top of the sadness that the world is experiencing with this Global meltdown. I want to select a few of our beloved Poets, and their family members, husbands, wives, to say a prayer for and have those led by this piece to also pray for these precious souls. Also those that suffer silently... Please pray for these members of Poetry Soup and family, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles, sister, brother, nieces, and cousins. Edward Ibeh mother in law. Marlene Evans son Jonathan Morris Evans. Belle Bellevue Husband, Alan. Jane Allison. Demetrios Trifiatis,Robert Lindley and his beloved wife. Pangiota Romios. Connie Marcum Wong stepson Michael. Also those that hold their suffering silently who have lost loved ones and those that are in depression and pain... In the day of my trouble I will call upon you, For you will answer me. Among the gods there is none like you. O Lord; Nor are there any works like Your works. All nations whom You have made Shall come and worship before you. O Lord, And shall glorify You name. For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God. PSALM 107:19-20 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-5 Then they cried out to the Lord in their Trouble, And He saved them out of their Distresses. He sent his word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. PSALM 107:19-20 Please pray.

Hi Harry, thank you my friend for your well wishes. We are all sinners my friend. I just try not to sin as much as I can and when I do I sincerely ask to be forgiven. We have a loving God that loves us so much he died so you and I by believing in him can be in a heavenly place forever. The apostle Paul was a murderer so was Moses and David. In spite of them not being a good Christian they other then Jesus were the greatest men of the bible. God forgave them of their sins and transformed them. Harry Hope you are well, thanks for your comment. I am so glad you stopped by. Be well my friend and God bless you...

WOW!!! What an Amazing/Beautiful write. I love how you added the bible verses. (Thanks) Each night I pray for Soup (on my prayer list). I know many are hurting. Many do not say how bad things are, they just write. God does hear our prayers. Have a great/blessed day writing away. Good to see you writing. "Merry Christmas" and "Happy New Year, 2022"..............

So I try to avoid those sources. In Sweden they know about this condition 300000 people suffer from it here in the States they dont have a clue, France, and Belgium are familiar also with this condition. I had to stop working and in June Im forced to retire. I like many are dealing with what life sometimes deals us. I hope to be on more and read from the great and talented friends that are here on the Soup. Hope you are well my friend and may the good Lord bless you...

My dearest friend Paul your words touch my heart. Miss you and many others my friend. Trying to overcome a condition called EHS Electromagnectic Hyper sensitivity. Cant be around cell towers, cell phones, wifi for too long. We are moving out in the countryside where there arent all this electrical grid. Hard to be on computer. Eventually hard wiring computer with protective screen and hopefully I will have a more normal life. Happened to me several months ago. I am a lot closer to God now. When Im around the wifi or cell phone or tower my feet and face and arm starts giving me a burning feeling.

God bless you for your compassion, my dearest friend, Michael. May He keep you and your family healthy. It is true than many of us have lost friends and family. I have lost eight friends and family since March and I almost joined them in October. Thank you for your prayers.

Demetrios so sad to hear of your friends. Loosing a friend, or a family member. Just one friend, or one family member is devastating I can't imagine loosing eight friends and family. I lost my father Rene in September and My Supervisor lost her husband, earlier in the year and just last month lost both her parents within weeks of each other. I am so glad you have made it through Demetrios. God listens to our prayers and I will keep praying for you and my fellow writers here that need Gods healing and resolve.May God continue to bless you my Dear friend, and all you love...

I was moved to prayer, dear friend, by this heartfelt verse. Prayer is so powerful, and much needed in these troubled times. Hugs and warmest regards, Evelyn

Yes my dear friend Evelyn. Right now so many of us need Gods healing power, and comfort. So many have lost loved ones or know of friends who are going through a serious illness. God bless you Evelyn and all you love...
