Focus on the prayer topic at hand, 

And God will answer as only He can. 

He'll give us all we ask sincerely of Him

When we pray with persistence, vigor and vim.

Intercede powerfully for others in need,

And the Holy Spirit will make our prayer mighty indeed.

Seek His aid with all your soul and your heart,

And angels will come;  Good works they will start.

With motives so pure and no greed, envy or hate,

With full expectation and patience, we wait.

We know God in His time will always come through;

With never ending faith, His promise is honest and true.

As God cares for us with a heart full of love,

He hears our cries as He listens to all from above.

As the greatest Father to His children, as a Shepherd to His sheep,

He'll deliver us from all evil; Our souls' safety He'll keep.
