I pray because the need flows from me constantly- awake, asleep. It does not change God, it changes me!
I know not by what methods rare, but this I know, God answers prayer!
I know that He has given us His word that tells me prayer is always heard,
And will be answered soon or late, and so I pray and calmly wait.
I know not if the blessing sought will come just in the way I thought,
But leave my prayers with Him alone, whose ways are wiser than my own-
Assured that He will grant my quest, or send some answer far more blessed.
