In Your Light

20170929_151331

In Your light Lord God we can see ourselves, and our need for You

without You shining in our hearts, we lose direction

we lose the meaning of who we are, so shine

Lord God, forgive us for being so dim

at times, may we be the light

You made us to be,

fully and completely.

Amen.

A Prayer for Cancer Patients

20171001_145939.jpg

Lord God, you know everything we face, and for those facing cancer right now, we ask that you would be with them in a special way.

You know the pain, You know the fear, Lord God bring comfort and hope.

Bring encouraging words through family and friends, and Lord – maybe even some hugs!

Please help the doctors to help each patient according to their needs.

And Lord God, if it is Your will please bring healing!! We humbly ask You our God. Amen.

Before Dawn, Before the Birds Even Sing

20170715_202837

Before dawn, before the birds even sing,

a single light

in the window of a small kitchen

where a young mother prays,

for her sick child.

And in another town

a husband kneels by his bed

in the shadow of a hall light,

praying for his estranged wife.

So many know

the desperation

and the comfort of the Lord God

as they pray, before dawn

before the birds even sing.

Tragedies

20171001_150001

There are times we don’t know what to say,

a silence of deep grieving, pulling us

further away

from courage, and yet

in the pain always the proof

we were made, with God’s heart

to strengthen

and bring hope

to each other.
