P erfect love casts out all fear: there’s no need to worry;
R emember this: Take your time—why do you hurry?
A sk, Seek and Knock: if you will ASK, you will receive:
Y es I AM right here with you, if you will just believe.

A ccess with confidence the power I have given you--
N ever doubt My word: I AM showing you The Truth.
D etermine to stand on the Rock: I will see you through.

S eek My face in prayer with every spare moment today;
E nter into My courts with thanksgiving and with praise!
E scalate urgent requests to My throne with boldness:
K eep yourself overflowing with My Spirit of promise.

M ake your requests known unto Me with faith:
Y earn not just for My hand, but seek My face.

F ollow My Righteousness--by faith with charity--as a start:
A ccept all people who call upon Me out of a pure heart.
C ast all your cares upon Me, because I care for you:
E nlighten others about Me: always proclaim The Truth.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 (King James Version)

I like how you made prayer part of the face to face topic. Some may think it can't be done but your Bible verse shows that is what God intends.

I like the acrostic idea...it works well with your message. Face-to-face with God, it doesn't get any better than that.

Seek His face; very well done! I enjoyed this.
Nancy Sullivan 10/21/10
Using the acrostic makes this great lesson material and aids in remembering the message. Beautifully written. Great job on staying consistent with the theme throughout.
Troy Manning10/22/10
I liked the idea of making an acrostic from your title! Helpful exhortations.
Genia Gilbert10/25/10
This is a unique idea and is rich with truth about seeking His face. Good writing.

Clever approach to the topic, and a beautiful poem.

I found some of the rhyme and meter somewhat bumpy.

I hope you write more acrostic poems--I can see them assembled as a small devotional book, or even illustrated as a calendar or something like that.
