“As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:16-17
“He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.” Psalm 102:17

Desperate for God

We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To hear from our God a promise clear;
To find his strength, and know his heart
To sense his presence at each day’s start.

We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To not rely on scanty whispers to the air;
To not base all hope on what others may say,
To hear truth beyond words like, “It’ll all be okay.”

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To combat the spiritual forces and dare
To wrestle with God till the answer is here;
To never give up, but to persevere.

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To be urgent – to abandon our selfish fears;
To entreat him each moment, though our spirits may tire
To weep, humbly bearing each burden and desire.

 We are in desperate need of desperate prayer –
To know each day that God is there.
To see our dry desert spring forth a fountain;
To reveal each step, and conquer each mountain.

To find grace to endure; seek for heavenly balm
To return every day – in the storms and the calm;
To not rest in the pleadings of yesterday’s tears;
But be desperate for God – be desperate in prayer.

Nina came to know the Lord as a teenager, and is grateful for the Lord’s grace and mercy in her life as she has sought to grow in her relationship with Christ through the years.

She and her husband currently attend Lehigh Valley Baptist Church and enjoy being a part of the ministries there. Along with being a wife and homemaker, she is thrilled to be able to teach music lessons to a number of piano students in the area. Poetry and meditational or motivational writings based on scripture have also remained one of her passions through the years!
