Put God in…..

Put God in your Prayers

Put God in your Prayers

You selfish man asking for yourself;

While you place God upon the shelf.

Praying all the time for personal gain,

Asking for blessing, calling His name.

You call out for treasure of wealth;

Worldly things and perfect health.

You ask for this, you ask for that,

But you’ve lost sight of where it’s at. 

You pray prayers with a greedy heart,

Seeking desires, but God is not a part.

You fill your mouth with empty words,

Thinking that your prayers will be heard.

If prayers are not answered your way,

Then you blame God and begin to stray.

Like a spoiled child, you huff and pout,

You didn’t get your way is what it’s about.

If you want to see wonders of many kinds

Put God in your prayers.

Just seek God first and heed His will divine

And you will see His love and care.
