Mystery of Prayer

Prayers are like written notes
Collected next to the alter of all time
Producing great changes upon earth
As people work in their upward climb

A team going in the same direction
Pulling together to get to where they want to go
Accepting help from each other
Being willing to learn and grow

Sharing a common direction
Encouraging each other
In their partnership in faith
Caring for their sisters and brothers

A mystery that is hard to understand
But interesting to think about
So share with others answered prayers
And who is in control without a doubt

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
