Answered Prayer Delayed

(Deuteronomy 7:22 Poetized)

Think of all the times when
Answered prayer was delayed.
Oh the whining and the moaning
The groaning for our wishes
To be fulfilled on our table
Of time.
But what a crime
It should be
(And we shall see!)
The folly of our own wants
Displayed in the haunts
Of our personal story
Oft seeking not His glory
But our own pleasures galore.
Yet what a horrible bore
Are those self-centered schemes.
Best to seek out His will
Put your own on “chill,”
Find out His ways,
Enjoy and extend yours days.
