Here is another "What" question: What God-blessed talent composed this powerful piece?? :)

I loved the format of this well-composed poem with each stanza beginning and ending with the same "what" question. I loved the images your descriptive words evoked, and your rhyming pattern was done well, too. I especially liked these lines: "Great mercy! As God turns the key
To set my soul at liberty..."

It was nicely on topic with a great message shared. I was blessed by it!

WOW! That is all I can say...WOW! Powerfully executed and powerfully written. Your love for the Lord leaps off the pages in your "love poem" for the Lord. I adored this!

Thank you so much for sharing this anointed poem, clearly inspired by the Spirit. Amen.

God bless~
Beautifully crafted words and thoughts, from a loving and seeing heart. Lovely and strong at the same time.

An amazing poem skillfully crafted by a gifted author. Inspired!
I want to stay here forever and just inhale all your breathless prose. This is so magnificent, so poignant and thrilling. If this doesn't get Editor's Choice I would be sorely disappointed. Masterful work! The rythm, the flow - the hunger for more . . .
This is beautiful. At first I thought it was about the guardian who held the keys of Hell. How pleasantly surprised I was to find out it was the story of Paul and Silas' jailer.

"How can I be saved?" -- This question should evoke a sigh of relief from every Christian.

Thank you for writing this.

Whoa! Such deep feeling and emotion. I devoured every line. Very well done. I got tears of joy from reading!
I am speechless... I am sitting here not hardly knowing what to write. I normally don't see poems this well crafted except in an in depth writing course on poetry where one is studying LongFellow; Sandburg and Frost. The stanzas are perfectly framed with pivotal questions that move the reader forward on the journey with the jailer. Although, I had no idea at first that was who it was (another gem to the poem), I thought it was a modern day jailer of some sort. I know you and the Holy Spirit partnered big time together on this one. It is absolutely a flawless poem in every way... You must have a great heart to reach the lost.
Best take on this familiar story I ever hear/saw/or read.
Superb!
