Poems about Prayer

Poems about prayers for reflection. Our prayers are sometimes answered without us realizing or, in ways that we did not ask for but God's plan is better than ours.


Everything I Needed
Poet: , 2012

Everything I needed,
I asked for in my prayers.
My prayers were always answered,
In many different pairs.

I asked God for some courage,
And he answered with a hum.
He gave me some dangers,
That I would overcome.

I asked God for some strength,
And he answered with a wrong.
He gave me some difficulties,
That would make me strong.

I asked God for some patience,
And he answered with a date.
He gave me some situations,
That I was forced to wait.

I asked God for love,
And he answered with throw.
He gave me lots of people,
That I could get to know.

I received nothing that I wanted,
Only that of which I need.
My prayers have all been answered,
With only a single plead.


The Soul's Sincere Desire
by James Montgomery


Prayer is the soul's sincere desire,
unuttered or expressed;
the motion of a hidden fire
that trembles in the breast.

Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
the falling of a tear
the upward glancing of an eye,
when none but God is near.

Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice,
returning from his ways,
while angels in their songs rejoice
and cry, "Behold, he prays!"

The saints in prayer appear as one
in word, in deed, and mind,
while with the Father and the Son
sweet fellowship they find.


No prayer is made by man alone
the Holy Spirit pleads,
and Jesus, on th'eternal throne,
for sinners intercedes.

O thou, by whom we come to God,
the Life, the Truth, the Way;
the path of prayer thyself hast trod:
Lord, teach us how to pray!


"Prayer is the contemplation of the facts of life from the highest point of view."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Prayer Quotes and Sayings


The Meaning of Prayer
Poet: Frances McKinnon Morton


A breath of prayer in the morning means a day of blessing sure;
a breath of prayer in the evening means a night of rest secure;

A breath of prayer in our weakness means the clasp of a mighty hand;
A breath of prayer when we're lonely means someone to understand;

A breath of prayer in our sorrows means comfort and peace and rest;
A breath of prayer in our doubtings assures us the Lord knows best;

A breath of prayer in rejoicing gives joy and added delight,
For they that remember God's goodness go singing far into the night.

There's never a year nor a season that prayer may not bless every hour,
And never a soul need be helpless when linked with God's infinite power.


"A prayer in its simplest definition is merely a wish turned Godward."
Phillips Brooks



Living In The Moment

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

If you want to truly, enjoy your life in full.
Living in the moment, is how you'll feel that pull.

Living in the moment, is the best thing you can do.
Our days are already numbered, and each moment should be true.

The moments of each day, are a special gift to us.
And shold never be wasted, we should feel very blessed.

Spend your time wisely, and with people whom you care.
And at night when you're thankful, just say a little prayer.

Living in the moment, is truly a special sight.
Take the moments you've been given, and thank God tonight.
