Lower the Mat--By Cindy Evans--United States

Lower the Mat

Just as the friends in the Bible
lowered their friend on a mat through the roof,
may I be someone that takes you to Jesus
to do what only He can do.
May I place you in front of Him,
praying for your healing,
may I step out in faith for you
caring, lifting, bringing...
No place too high,
no time to be shy,
just to get you to Jesus,
may that be my heart's cry!

Cindy Evans is a published poet living in the greater Atlanta area. She does receptionist work for corporate offices as well as at non-for-profits. She is happily married to her husband, Mark, and they enjoy ferris wheels, lighthouses, Christian movies and walking trails.


  1. Thank you Cindy for a most beautiful message and beautifully written poem on a subject dear to my heart. It was also a reminder of what I need to do with my "ill" family members and that is pray for them as I leave them in His most capable hands. So glad you share your talent with all of us here on Whispers.

  2. It is awesome to share Jesus with those who do not know or have not learned of Jesus. To see in their eyes "the new light" is an incredible moment and a very memorable one, too! Thanks for a beautiful poem! Sheri

  3. Thank you, Robert Dufresne, for the following comment--

    An evangelic message from a Soul in love with Jesus and all our siblings. Your love ripples out in this poem. I like the analogy along with the title. Great job of it Cindy.

    Cindy wants to "say a humble and grateful thank you to Tim and Bob as well."--Karen

  7. Dear Cindy,
    There are many poets whose words speak of faith, but there is a special quality in this poem that makes it unique. Yes, please be the one who takes me to Jesus. Awesome poem, dear. Love, Carolyn

  8. Thank you, Christine Tate, for the following comment--

    Hi Cindy, I love the title and message in your lovely poem. I agree that as ambassadors for Christ, we should be willing to reach out and share the good news with those around us. Well written! God bless you.

  9. Hi Cindy. "Lower The Mat" is a poem that is right in season. Leading others to Christ while we stand firm in Him ourselves is a command that Jesus gave us. Thank you for the reminder. Good seeing your work here on Whispers. Continued blessings!
