Talking to God in my heart


How I can explain…
what prayer is to me?
How I see prayer as my one to one
with God my Creator…
my Abba.

Prayer… is talking to God;
telling Him my problems,
asking for His mercy…
and compassion,
thanking Him…
for his blessings,
for His protection.

In prayer…
God hears my requests
for my family;
for my friends.
Believe and trust interlinks
my conversation with God.
And Faith is the glue.

I believe in God.
I trust…
He knows what is best for me.
He understands my weakness,
He forgives me.
I ask for strength…
My wrongs to fix right.

And when I cannot understand God
and I begin to falter,
that is when I turn more to prayer.
Faith my anchor.

I trust…
and that gives me hope.
God knows…
what is best for me.
I Believe.
I Trust.
I have Faith.

In the silence…
In the distractions…
In the work place…
At day’s break…
At day’s end…
This is the power of Prayer.
Talking to God in my heart.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
