Spiritual Poems

Talking to the Lord

by Ellen Bailey

I live through the day and do my daily chores
I kneel by my bed at night and talk to the Lord
I thank Him for the sunshine and the friendly smiles
I share with Him a list I have mentally compiled

I tell Him of the goodness others have shown to me
I ask Him to look after them and their families
I tell him about those who are in need of help
I ask Him to show me how I can help them myself

I tell Him I will look for the best in those I meet
Whether I meet them in church or upon the street
I tell Him I will try to be more mild and meek
I will try to love my enemy and turn the other cheek

I tell Him where I might have gone astray
I promise Him that I will mend my ways
I tell him of the troubles on earth down here below
But most of all, I tell Him how much I love Him so
