Out of the 60-some poems here, I only liked a few.

One of the better ones:

"No Favor Do I Seek Today"

I come not to ask, to plead, or implore You,
I just come to tell You how much I adore You,
For to kneel in Your presence makes me feel blest
For I know that You know all my needs best...
And it fills me with joy just to linger with You
As my soul You replenish and my heart You renew,
For prayer is much more than just asking for
things -
It's the peace and contentment that quietness
brings...
So thank You again for Your mercy and love
And for making me heir to Your kingdom above!
