Writing - Words shared


Great news today for me in that I've had a request from an ordained chap to use the prayer below which appears in Thursdays blog.


God is in the Rain

When we pray to God looking to the skies
we see the clouds before our eyes,
and as we pray to God we ask questions
for ourselves and others, for His suggestions,
on how to live each and every day
and keep illness, fear and trouble at bay.

When we pray to God looking to the skies
we see endless expanse before our eyes,
and as we pray to God we confess our sins
looking for the peace His forgiveness brings
to our aching souls and tortured lives,
bringing gentleness that we may survive.

When we pray to God looking to the skies
we see the sun before our eyes,
and as we pray to God we give our vow
to live as He would expect from now
so that the world will be a better place
for us and the rest of the human race.

When we pray to God looking to the skies
we see drops of rain before our eyes,
but as we pray to God we fail to see
the extent and infinite care that He
lavishes on us time and again,
as frequently as every drop of rain.

 My hero was created post recession and so has no concept of how 'good' things were pre-2008. In 'I Have To Get It Right' when he began to flex his muscles he was working in an accountant's office. Then after the Gurentai took him under their wing and removed all of his financial worries, it was justice that was his major concern. He did become involved in international relations in 'The 51st State' but it was for the maintenance of a respectful distance between countries, rather than economic reasons. His trips into the USA had repercussions which can be read about in 'The Biter Bit' but then by the time things began to change in 2011 and the recession was really biting, Steele was trying to make sense of the state of the nation in 'A Changed Reality' and coming up against some really nasty people taking advantage of the shortage of money. By the time the USA are out of their recession Steele's steps are still being dogged by an unknown enemy from the same country. In 'Inceptus' we also find out more about what makes the man tick. The most recent Steele book 'Castled' Steele is once again at risk from unseen enemies. It would seem that he has become quite recession proof!

All books are available in paperback or ebook through Amazon, Smashwords and all good book shop websites.



This is a dystopian story that hinges directly on the state of the nation as a result of fiscal mismanagement. Having said that it is more a story of human relations, privations, love and loss.

God Bless
