Prayer Group

Believe the pathway set ahead
Leads to what is good;
A place lovely and true;
Opposite of worldly falsehood.

A pathway which is built
On Biblical principles
That provide stepping stones
To a place of amazing miracles.

Desire to be remembered
For positive attributes
That impact the world
With uplifting spiritual fruits.

Rely on past experiences
As guidance for your hopes.
Use negative experiences
As ways to learn the ropes.

Difficult events of the past
Are not stop signs
To the path ahead
But rather guidelines.

So it’s very important
To reflect on the past,
Seek the Father’s guidance
And in Jesus name always ask.

Reflect about the past
And the lessons learned.
Head to a brighter place
So gloom is overturned.

Work together with others;
Receiving the help needed
And learning lessons of life
You so often have heeded.

All need a strategy
And a road map to follow
So as to not just go along
To places that are hollow.

Instead, take the initiative
At doing what is right;
Applying the Holy Word
And always willing to fight.

Hunger for spiritual food;
Taking in what is good
In order to be prepared
For doing what you should.

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.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    Studying in Genesis 49 a while back, Jacob gathered his sons together as he was in his last days and gave a talk. The thought hit me of the importance of listening to advice; determining what outcome we want and what we need to do to make it happen.

    This poem is about the importance of the path God has provided through His Word and the need for prayer as we step ahead along that path. Have a blessed Sunday my friends!
