Prayer Warrior

Prayer Warrior

As you beseech heaven's throne
Be assured you’re not alone.
Multitudes around the globe
Have put on their priestly robe
Of righteousness and purity of heart
Then into spiritual warfare they start
To war against Satan’s lair
The principalities and powers of the air.
Fight on, gentle warrior of the Cross.
Fight on counting all things but loss,
Pray on through the night
Carrying on the good fight.
It's not by your strength and power
That gives victory in your prayer hour.
Not by might nor power, says the Word.
But by my spirit says the Lord.

Something that definitely needs to be said, Jerry.

Here's an artistic challenge for you: In your next poem, instead of using metaphors and alluding to word pictures that others have already used, try to paint a picture of your message. See if you can extend it through the whole poem. That's often more effective than "plain words." :)
