Spiritual Prayer Power



I bow my knees to the Father,
Whom each family in Heaven;
Honors Him and our Brother,
And on earth, His name is given.

Granting the wealth of His glory,
That He may grant you with the strength;
And for being exemplary,
To persevere at any length.

As the power through His Spirit,
Entering your inner being;
Dwelling in your faith through merit,
Within His Word of your reading.

Be rooted and grounded in love,
To comprehend with all the saints;
Of the length and breadth up above,
The love of Christ without constraints.

Fill with all the fulness of God,
Can do far more abundantly;
Than we ask or think as we laud,
While worshipping prudently.

To Him be glory in the church,
And Christ through all generations;
He gives the truth in our search,
In making us new creations.

Richard Newton Sherrer

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was a small family farm that was handed down through 8 generations of Sherrer men until my father; Newton just could not make a living from it any longer. He thought that I would make a better living away from the farm. So, I decided to join the Air Force in 1969 upon graduating from high school. I gained quite a bit of experience and insight on life while in the service. Even though I was only stationed on the east coast of the US, my Air Force career took me to Germany and Korea. After 20 years wearing of the blue uniform, I decided going in a different direction and found myself becoming very diverse in many different fields. Something still seemed missing to me after being separated from the service for about 10 years. The Air Force was a way of life for me, but really missed life in Korea. I found myself changing careers again. Poetry was an interest of his since my days in high school. With returning to the Lord, I felt motivated to write of my Christian beliefs. I started looking at Bible verses and reflecting on my own personal experiences. The Bible was found to be as true today as to when the various books were written. I could see much of what the Bible is teaching us as valid as every in modern time. It felt only natural to me on using his personal experience based on Bible verses and see much of my own life written in the Scriptures. God inspires me what to write about though. I do not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. I am just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures. more…
