 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


I urge that petitions and prayers,

Intercessions and thanksgivings;

Made for everyone that shares,

Combat any of your cravings.


All of those in authority,

Lead a tranquil and a quiet life;

In godliness and dignity,

Without having all of the strife.


This is good and pleases the Lord,

And acceptable in His sight;

Leaders being in one accord,

Doing what is morally right.


He wants everyone be saved,

Come to the knowledge of the truth;

Not to be wickedly enslaved,

While being rude and uncouth.


For there is nobody like God,

Mediate for humanity;

Able to cure where we are flawed,

In a world of insanity.


Jesus was a ramson for all,

A testimony of a time;

The One who had taken the fall,

For all of our sinful crime.


I was appointed a herald,

Telling the truth as I lie not;

For people have been imperiled,

The lifestyle that they have sought.


In faith and truth as a teacher,

Desire that all learn to pray;

Since I am an out-reacher,

Enabler to trust and obey.


And women should dress modestly,

Not like the ladies of the night;

Appearing humbled as honestly,

Not having a seductive sight.


Proper for women who affirm,

Desire for worshipping God;

Not temporary but long term,

For giving Him honor and laud.


A woman should learn in silence,

In silence with full submission;

With His Law in full compliance,

And in spiritual tradition.
