My God Can

by | May 19, 2008 | Omnipotence, Poem

A few years ago a friend gave me an empty coffee can. She told me she has one that she uses for a God can. She writes her prayers on little pieces of paper, then with lots of prayer, puts them inside the can. I have used mine over the years and must say that it does work for me. Every prayer that is in that can has been answered in one way or other. I just wanted to share this with you.

I have a God can, so easy to do.
It used to hold coffee, and when it was through,
I use it to hold  my petitions and such,
To a God I hold dear who loves me so much!
When I have a problem, I write it and say,
Dear Lord, it is your will and not mine today.
I fold it and place it inside of this can,
No longer mine, it’s in God’s Divine Plan.
My prayers are all answered in His loving way.
I’m grateful to have Him in my life today!
I know that this might sound quite silly to some.
But I know the answer to my prayers have come.
I believe in my God can and that’s how I know,
When it goes in that can, it’s time to let go.
The relief that I feel when I do it this way,
Helps me feel so peaceful and happy today!
