Do you ever feel like you're the only one in this whole world,
That has to struggle just to get by?
Things being so hard to deal with, that's for sure.

Do you ever think about times when you feel you just can't go on?
Just getting up out of bed is such a chore?
How do we overcome terrible things that happen? The answer is God.

We pray, pray, pray and I'm sure you've wondered is HE really listening?
I know from experience prayer works-so don't ever doubt it!
Even though things are said or done that become twisted.

Do you ever feel like God doesn't hear or answer your prayers?
Did you know God's time is not like our time? God knows no time.
But we expect an answer very soon and if we don't get it, feel like a failure

God knows each and everyone of our hearts today and always!
Remember, HIS WILL-will be done! So don't ever give up on prayer!
And, if God be for us, who-I mean really, who can be against us? NOBODY!

Great ending. We have nothing to fear with God on our side.
I think that adding more imagery could make this poem even more powerful. Something for you to consider, anyway.
Keep up the good work!

I like the message here, but the structure doesn't quite do it for me. Great work.

Neat message, great ending!

Your message is excellent. Painting pictures with your words would help this poem. Free verse is difficult to write so that it still feels like a poem.

Nevertheless, the message of continued prayer through good times and bad is very good. Thanks for sharing.

very encouraging reading on the power of prayer.

I LOVE the message here. If you work this a bit and include a scripture passage it would be a great devotional piece.
