As the hype surrounding the year 2012 as the end of the world gains momentum, the future of mankind is being debated by believers and nonbelievers alike. Will it be Armageddon as many doomsday prophets claim, or does God have another, better plan? Either way, God is calling His people to Himself as never before. Perhaps this new conversation is His answer to raising our consciousness to a higher level of communion with Him. Poet Elizabeth Allan believes this to be true, and her thoughtful and timely poems reflect this understanding. Divided into two sections, Prayers and Praise, Allens poems combine rich imagery with rhythmic diversity. In My Delight Is in You, Allen gives thanks for her blessings and looks to the Lord for her happiness. Allen seeks His spirit to rid her of selfish desires and help her develop a servants heart in Spirit Filled. Other poems celebrate grace, forgiveness, Gods enduring love, and Christs return. Prayers from the Heart offers thoughts of praise, worship, and a longing to know Him. But more importantly, they celebrate knowing what it is to be in Him. Take the time to start, renew, or strengthen your relationship with the Lord and be blessed today!
