About the Poem

I was told I would never have a child. My faith in God proved all were wrong. He gave me that gift at the age of 38

A Few Visitor Comments

This poem really touched me. It reminds me how GOD always answers our prayers but often I was not patient enough to wait for His answer.
I love this poem. It reminds me of my sleepness nights and anxious days. I know exactly how the writer felt. I was there myself,I was also called names; but like she said, God also answered our prayers. His name is Nathaniel (a man with no deceit).
Truly Wonderful. GOD can do anything
I love this poem God does still answer prayers...

One Minute Until Midnight

How long is too long
For God to answer prayer?
Consider Sarah, Elizabeth and me.
We prayed for children, many years, all three.

People laughed and made scorn.
But after 23 years my child was born.
Miracle baby - that's what he is.
Sent from God, precious jewel of his.
Joshua Caleb is his name.
Devoted men to God was their fame.

I hope someday
His life will touch.
Others with his gentleness.
Reminding all to God does call.
He answers prayers both great and small.
To my son in whom I'm well pleased
