The Devil Hates Prayer
© 2011 Tom D Blakely
The devil tells me prayer’s a waste of time.
For no one ever answers on that line
Forget thanksgiving and every type of prayer
You’re talking to yourself for no one’s there!
Each time that I’m distracted from my Lord
By Satan, by myself or by the world,
I lose contentment, I’m never satisfied
And all of this because I never prayed.
To You O Lord I’ll pray throughout the day
And from Your path remind me not to stray.
For prayer brings comfort, God’s blessing and His peace;
I pray because God loves to give me these.
“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
