Pause for Poetry — Just Chat With Him

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

Just Chat With Him

by Frances Gregory Pasch 

You need not pray down on your knees,

It can be underneath the trees,

Or in the house, or in a bank,

On a grocery line, or filling your tank.

No formal words does God require

Just chat with Him—that’s His desire.

It can be in the day or night.

Any time will be all right. 

What matters most is don’t forget

And get so busy that you let

Things block Him out of all you do,

For He would not do that to you.

He wants to be your closest friend.

On Him alone you can depend.
