About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #51 - True Prayer and the Nature of God

At the end of the day
Sit with us and pray
And at the beginning, too
When each day starts anew

Prayer in any form is good
Connects you with the Source
But there are better ways than others
To speak with God, of course

Prayer should come from deep inside
Not uttered verse by verse
This way is often little better
Than an uttered curse

For words you say with little thought
But say because you’re told
Hold little value
When they come out of a mold

True prayer’s a conversation from the heart
You say what you truly feel
And then these words they play a part
In helping you to heal

Give thanks, for sure
God loves to know you care
He wants to know you love Him
And acknowledge that He’s there

But after that, just talk to Him
Don’t ask for special favors
He grants not wishes like lollipops
That come in different flavors

God is Mind, all powerful
So infinitely wise
He fits not in some box
That you can quantify with size

But He is there regardless
Giving order to all life
And watching His creation grow
With beauty it is rife

It all unfolds in God-time
Like a seed that starts to sprout
And each with its own schedule
Its true beauty does come out

It’s Natural Law that guides it all
From oceans big to kittens small
And asking God to change things
Would cause the sky to fall

But we are here to help you
Here at your beck and call
We in the spirit world
Are here to help you all

Give thanks to God and praise
But ask him not your life to save
We’re the ones who intervene if we can
If, indeed, that’s part of God’s plan

If this seems different than what you’ve heard
Let the new knowledge not disturb
Your life’s belief
Only find relief
In knowing you’re always cared for
That’s what we’re there for

And God, too
Looks over you
From within and without
Of this have no doubt
You are loved
No matter what

  1. An interesting poem today. I cannot help but think of the many prayers I recited within the worship services of the organized church for so many years. And I cannot help but think of those prayers that came without my even knowing from the depth of my being when pain and suffering knew no limits in my life. So much to ponder today from the World of Spirit. I will read this again and again and probably again... Thank you, Suzanne, and thank you, Spirit World.
