by Eraina Patrice Ross
Godís love is great, powerful, and ever-present, but in todayís world, itís so easy to get distracted and lose sight of the one who provides us with all lifeís pleasures and rewards.
In Poetry and Prayers to Jesus, Eraina Patrice Ross delivers the word of God on many levels: as lyrical engaging verse, as inspirational words of wisdom, through Scripture passages and prose, and as her own heartfelt prayers of thanks for all He has provided her. By exploring through verse topics such as lifeís challenges, the power of prayer, the importance of faith and praise, and simple gratitude for His presence and blessings, Ross gently reminds those who have wandered away from the fold exactly where their strength and salvation lie:
Release your guilt, your fear and shame
Delete your negative past, call out my name
Believe that I am the one who set you free
Receive the gift I gave, thatís Me.
The poems are her prayers, a beautiful tribute to God who makes all things possible.
