(Footprints II ) Prayer And The Sea



In a dream I saw the sea once calm and serene Beneath the setting sun's fading distant gleam Where color on water runs Then a darkening sky with breakers crashing on the shore nearby Then I went to a large white building several stories high And looked behind me where waves as high As mountains were racing toward the shore I once stood by. Every prayer is a step on the straight and narrow stair. When we pray we are inside the chichina glory already today. The ark of prayer shall lift us above this world's waters of troubles, problems, and cares. In a world of darkness, turmoil, and wars Jesus stands upon the Sea of Galilee, Calling out "Peace Be Still" to you and me! I will lead you to Heaven's shores! Look up above! Every believer lives beneath the shadow of a snow white dove! The sea may be dark and deep But all power in the universe was given to the Son our soul's safe to keep! The devil with evil and darkness may come, But God living within us is the eternal power to overcome! For the final battle He has already won! Prayer is the pillar on which Heaven stands Written by the omnipotent Holy hand. He is a lamp unto my feet. He is waiting for this world upon His judgement seat. No evil Him can escape or beat. He is the guiding light down His straight and narrow way That leads to glory forever someday! A church is an airport where we find our salvation ticket. Which lifts us out of the swamp of despair, depression, and despond before we enter the gate wicket. The church is an airport terminal where we fellowship and worship And wait for an open gate To board our flight to glory home! When we pray our eyes on the Lord stay. Don't look away. Doubt will sink you in the Sea of Galilee very, very quickly. A healthy soul is by the word of God fed. An empty soul like chaff will blow away dead. Read your bible and pray every day. God's word is undeniable and infallible. Only God is almighty! Over lesser things we have no cause to worry! Rejoice! rejoice! rejoice! God's word is His voice. Revival is His only plan for survival. I gave Him my life. He stands with me in trials and strife. My heart is His throne until He takes me home. The typhoon blows. The blizzard snows. In the spring blooms the rose. In fall we harvest what grows. Blessed are those whom truly God knows. Thou who never lost a battle stand by me. Oh Lord sing in my heart lovely Thy praises to the end of the ages. Till we spend together all of eternity! Today save a soul! Tell someone how God has made you spiritually whole!
