Proof of Faith

Proof of Faith

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

Today me and my daughters narrowly avoided a 6 car pileup in the rain... it was as if time stopped so we could be spared.

"

When I prayed last night, I asked you to keep us safe;
Protect my family, especially, my beautiful daughters.
Today, you reached down and kept us out of harm's way;
Kept us alive by missing that accident-- proof of Faith.

I thank you, and my daughters thank you.
I made sure they understood exactly who protected us.
I asked them each to pray and thank you personally
As we drove away from the pileup, shaken emotionally.

Faith is confidence in what we hope for;
Faith is belief in what we do not see.
You proved that today, Lord, by saving my family, so
I'll take this opportunity to share my faith through poetry.

I take it this is autobiographical too. Thank God you all got away untouched. I guess prayers are never prayed in vain. Br safe all of you. This is really an emotional piece. An eye-opener too, that God really exists.


Small correction- Second stanza, is there an apostrophe required,shouldn't it be "Daughters"? And in the second last line of the last stanza, a comma after "Lord" would make it more effective.

Thank you very much Nadia... appreciate your review very much :)
Great work Aaron, faith does have the power to move mountains. I glad you and your daughters are safe.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

This was very touching. I am glad you & your family are all okay. G-d works miracles every day if we just open our eyes to see the simplest things as such! Well done.
