A Prayer For our Beautiful Little Churches
O God, we come unto Thee with the desire to ask
Thy guidance and help so that we may dwell together
in unity which is good and pleasant. We are not many
members, but we all belong to Thee. Thou art our Father
and we are Thy children Help us then, O Father, to be
united in one bond of love for Thy Kingdom's sake
in Thy name Amen.

How beautiful our little church we hold so dear
how beautiful the feet of the preacher who preaches.
who tells it like it is with out any fear
we don't call him Rev. we call him our preacher
he is not above us he is one of us.
When our preacher gets ready to preach
there are no prepared sermon no prepared speech
on a piece of paper ready to be preached,
He gets his sermon from God's own mouth
and God stays there to listen he never leaves the house.
We are not a large crowd but how beautiful the people
who stand up for God so loving and loud.
Our Church has no time limit on how long we are to be there
in our little church we are on God's time limit and
he has all the time to spare.If in our little church
a need for help is there or if a call for help came from
outside we always have enough to share
When strangers walks through our little church doors
they are strangers no more. they are one of us and made welcome
with hand shakes and smiles and there will be hand shakes smiles
might even be a hug are two when they walk back out the door.
There are no baptism pool with sparkling warm water
behind the pulpit ready for the new convert.
Our baptism pool is in a creek full of rocks and sand
and all the glory of God and his son is there
making holy the water with their mighty hands.
King James version
Paslm (66)-1-2(24)-1(33)8
Make a joyful noise unto
God all ye lands;Sing forth
the honor of his name;
Make his praise glorious,
The earth is the Lord's,
and the fullness thereof;
The world and they that dwell
therein. Let all the earth
fear the Lord; let all
inhabitants of the world
stand in awe of Him.
