Our study time each week
Is something to look forward to.
A time to delve into the Word.
We leave the home with hearts renewed –
Put into practice what we’ve heard.

We gather in His name
And lift each other up in prayer.
When to our group our burdens bring,
A time to show how much we care
And trust the Lord with ev’rything.

We share what God has done
In hearts subservient to Him.
And as we share His work in us,
Then others’ faith swells up within.
They grow in confidence in trust.

Lift up His Holy Name.
A time to worship and to praise.
And with our focus on the Lord,
We give our minutes, hours, days –
Surrender all, till there’s no more.

Our study time each week
Is something we look forward to –
To study, worship and to pray.
We leave encouraged and renewed
Ideal ending to the day.

Sweet poem with an unusual rhyme scheme...I always appreciate that.

Since you're good with the basics of poetry, I'd encourage you to experiment with more poetic language: metaphors, similes, great imagery. That will really distinguish your poetry.

Nice work on this. You had me analyzing your rhyme and meter scheme. Very creative!

A most interesting structure.
Just a thought... In the last stanza, were you to make a slight alteration to the third line, you would be able to incorporate all of the aspects significant to your home group.
"To study, worship and to pray."
To study, worship, share and pray.
