They Need Your Care

The headache, God, please relieve her headache.
His sinuses, Father, please stop his pain.
These people who serve You daily.
They have helped me again and again.
Touch their bodies, Lord.
Touch their lives.
Help them to smile
and bear their strife.
Give them peace.
Give them strength.
Help them to find joy
in You again.
My pastor and his wife
need Your care.
I thank You, God,
to trust You’ll be there.

Passing Angels and Warriors

Moments of hardship arise,
and so does our God.
He sends His warriors
and angels abroad.
They minister and encourage,
and maybe even provide
a token of God’s love
by being at our side.
Whether in sweet fellowship
with a dear old soul,
or comforting companionship
with one not quite whole.
Whether giving advice
greatly sought,
or allowing wisdom
to be taught.
They take their charge
and serve God well,
leaving such a strong testimony
to tell.

Runaway Slaves

Runaway slaves
with a debt to pay,
that is a good description
of us all today.
Running from a God
who loves us so,
we’re convinced we’re freed
but it just isn’t so.
Sin has become our master.
We’re slaves no matter what.
How much more freeing
to serve a living and loving God.
So Christ comes to plea
and pay the debt we owe.
He makes us family.
He does not let go.
Surrender your account
that has been paid by Christ.
God loves you as His child
and longs to give you eternal life.
