God is not an ATM

Where we constantly withdraw;

To top up our emotional account

When we beg or ask for more.

God is not a magician

Where we wave our magic wand;

When we demand a quick response

Whilst having neglected Him all along.

God is not disposable

To meet any carnal desires,

Or to fulfil the lusts of the flesh

And to cater for every liar.

God is not religious

To impose rules and regulations,

But desires that we obey willingly

From a heart that’s filled with patience.

God will answer all our prayers

When they’re according to His will;

To heal the sick, to deliver souls

And when His commandments we fulfil.

A prayer that touches His heart indeed

Is “Lord forgive all of my sins,

Be my Lord and Savior

And cleanse my soul within”

Our God is holy and righteous

And deserves our love and respect;

As we humble ourselves and focus on Christ

And HIs sacrifice we ought to never forget.
