Breathing the air of prayer

My heart continually
Cries out to the living Jesus.
Grasping and gasping, it travails
With a fanatically fixated focus
Because it knows no other
Solution for life’s situations
Or healing for its pain.
My brokenness ignites
My prayers with passion
And keeps me calling
Day and night
On the One who loves me most.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
