TRUST JESUS TODAY
(This is a real life experience, and I have been finding it difficult to explain it poetically. I have made an effort to convey this fantastic incident, and am sorry if it is a muddled piece. This incident took place on March 6th 2003 and I don’t think I will ever forget the effect of prayer and doubt our calling to prayer either.)
Just imagine hearing
A voice within you say
‘Get up, it’s time. I want you to
Get on your knees and pray.’
I looked at the clock in the faint moonlight
Through the partly open window.
It was way past twelve;
I scarce could believe
I was in for what one would call hallucinations.
It beckoned me in firmer tones
To get down on my knees.
More out of fear not obedience
I gave in to its pleas.
I prayed five decades of the Holy Rosary
And then heard the voice again
‘There is someone out there who needs your prayers
And feels My peace flow in.’
It took me a while to go to sleep
Feelings of excitement and awe took hold of me.
I really prayed, didn’t I?
During the following day I became inquisitive
And kept wondering who this person might be,
So out of curiosity I phoned all my friends
To unravel this mystery.
Alas, the day went by and it was almost sunset.
I walked down the road and met up with an old friend.
I hadn’t met her for a couple of years;
And while talking I casually asked her
‘By the way, when is your birthday?’
‘It’s today!’ she exclaimed! ‘Why do you ask?’
‘And how is your day treating you?’
And this is wht she said:
‘I’ve had the most odd feeling
The whole night through
I felt that someone was praying for me.
And I sat up and prayed a whole Rosary.
All the weeks worry that burdened me
Seemed to vanish instantly.’
I smiled and said a silent prayer,
‘Thank you Lord!
I’m glad I listened to your call.’
