      Hello- so I’m new around here and started writing poetry just last year and I thought since I need to stay involved in SE now, I’d post some of my poetry. I’ve never had any serious poets look at my work before so critiques are SO welcome! I hope you enjoy it!

      PRAYER:

      Isn’t it amazing…
      That when we come in prayer
      God hears us when we call;
      We can know that He is there?

      Isn’t it outstanding…
      That every time we plea
      God gives us free forgiveness
      Each time we bend a knee?

      Isn’t it remarkable…
      That each day we can find
      Something to be thankful for
      Inside a gracious mind?

      Isn’t it worth praising…
      That by simply asking
      God will answer prayer
      And rain a show’r of blessing?

      Isn’t it just humbling…
      That we can also know:
      God is in control;
      He has power to say no?

      Isn’t it outstanding…
      That in any place or time
      We can come to Him in prayer-
      Any one of them is fine?

      Isn’t it so loving…
      That even when we whisper
      Jesus hears every call
      From each brother or sister?

      Isn’t it plain crazy…
      That a God who knew no sin
      Came down to earth to die
      So that we’d be welcomed in?

      Isn’t it outrageous…
      That ’cause He loved us so
      He came to die a horrid death
      So we could pray to Him and know:

      That it is so relieving…
      He saved each one of us;
      Just so we could know Him more-
      See Him someday: victorious!

      So, isn’t it just glorious…
      That we can talk like friends
      With the One who made the skies and seas,
      Who loves us greatly to the end?

      Now I lift up a prayer
      To Jesus, Christ: my King.
      I thank you that you hear me now-
      You’re close to me when I’m praying.

      @banana-peacock-warrior That is lovely! I especially like this stanza:

      Isn’t it so loving…
      That even when we whisper
      Jesus hears every call
      From each brother or sister?

                @emberynus-the-dragonslayer: Thanks so much!

                In my poetry notebook, (only counting those I feel are really any good, that I started writing after I discovered I wanted to take it seriously) I have exactly 46 poems. The number grows by maybe 1 or 2 every 2ish weeks.

                Though- I need plenty of practice and maybe a quarter of them will probably never make it onto  SE because they’re about personal topics like crushes/frustrations/trials. Poetry is kinda like the way I like to pray so there are a lot of them.
