“God will do nothing except in answer to prayer.” John Wesley

His Answer

He lives outside of time in a place where only He can be

Entering in and out of galaxies and space

The universe struggles to contain His breath

The vast expanse of heaven cannot maintain all of Who He is

And it is this One, who is beyond description or contrast,

This One Who heard the prayers

Of those long past

Of those He loved

And who loved His name

He remembered them and offered heaven’s answer

He sent His answer and His answer was you.

He answered them

When you left and embraced the unknown

He answered them

When you struggled to do what was right

He answered them

When you were misunderstood and scorned

He answered them

When the tide began to turn and darkness turned to morn

He answered them each time

When He sent you.

 

He still lives in the unexplained span of space

Where He is, angels and heavenly beings dare not look on His face

Mankind in his pride peeks through telescopes seeking to explain

The vast expanses of His incredible domain

The natural world collapses under the weight of all of Who He is

And earthly kingdoms dissolve with a wave of His hand

And once again it is this One, beyond description or contrast

This One Who has heard your prayers

For others to know Him just as He had planned

Long before your time has passed

For you, His loved one and delight

He is answering your prayers

For those now standing in the field to work

He is answering your prayers

For struggles yet to take place

He is answering your prayers

For the trials and sufferings waiting in the wings

He is answering your prayers

For new strength to arise, fresh like the spring

He is answering your prayers

For generations yet to be born

And for those who remain even in their wake

He is answering your prayers

Because you have loved His name.
