Adam and Eve were deceived

Lack of good judgement both were naive

Disobeying God they ate the fruit

Sin on mankind this act did impute


God was unreachable

Alone incapable of reconciliation.

Man had no hope,

Man was doomed,


But God had a plan for his creation of love

He would send His only Son

Down from heaven above

Victory one day would be won!


Turn back to God

Look to His Son

Repent and turn from sin

This is how reconciliation begins


Read your Bible everyday

This will keep you on the straight and narrow way

Put God first in all you do

He has promised to see you through


Donít forget this simple task

Remember to pray and just ask

God has promised to answer your prayer

Just remember He is always there


Pray for otherís

Remember to forgive

Yeshua gave us a simple example of prayer

Follow it, you will never err


"Our Father, Who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen."


As I begin another New Year

Singing For auld lang syne, my dear

Shouting praise's full of cheer

Encouragement echo's in my mind

There is hope for mankind!


note:
"The Lord's Prayer "is truly the summary of the whole gospel." "Since the Lord...after handling over the practice of prayer, said elsewhere, 'Ask and you will receive,' and since everyone has petitions which are peculiar to his circumstances, the regular and appropriate prayer (the Lord's Prayer) is said first, as the foundation of further desires."

Your poem expresses hope for mankind and it is God himself who has given us The Lord's Prayer that we can use as our daily plea to Him. Poems are entered and enjoyed by readers all the time.
