Take time with Me to Pray

people praying by cross

Take time each day with Me to pray

To pause before you begin your day

To think of Me in silent and spoken prayer

Feeling I’ll be there

Knowing I really do care

Are you hurting and feeling blue?

You don’t know what to do

The bills they are high

Your spirit is low

Your life is filled with stress

Your life is in a mess

Your job leaves little time for rest

You’re burnt out

Life isn’t fun anymore

People have been to you unkind

No peace for your troubled mind

Your boss is piling work upon you

With your wife you’ve had a quarrel

You can’t see a brighter tomorrow

You have children who won’t talk to you

You have a son, a daughter, brother, sister, who has abandoned you

A family member, friend or colleague to alcohol and/or drugs is addicted

You have been abused physically, sexually or emotionally

You are poor

You can’t see an open door

You are addicted

Can’t stand the stabbing pain of by drugs beng afflicted

Can I suggest this heavenly prescription?

Take time with Me to pray

It may not solve your problems

But this I know it will do

You’ll be given strength to see you through

Perhaps, you’ll also be given some direction

So life becomes more joyful than you expected

Because with heavenly peace you’re infected

So you can spread a message of joy

A new song in people’s hearts you and they will enjoy

All because you took time to pray

Give to Me the gift of each new day
