A prayer in troubled times.
Help us Look Ahead
With all that’s happening we lose sight of the joys ahead.
In the present world condition… our heart begins to dread,
There are terrible plights of humanity in every land;
So many lost and hurting people unable to the way understand.
The number of the hungry and the victimized grow each day.
Our heart hurts and we turn our eyes away.
But the pain and misery cuts a path deep,
Their desperate conditions in our mind we keep.
If we are not careful, when we get so caught up in the world’s woes,
We lose sight of the joy deep within our soul.
Help us Jesus to be able to lean into Your strength and power,
So our love and joy stays fresh and not discouraged or soured.
Help us to always see the bigger picture of what lie ahead,
So we will not be filled with unneeded stress or dread.
Help us to reach out and touch those ones we can reach,
And give us wisdom to comfort the disheartened and weak.
Allow our words bring a ray of hope to bring joy to another,
So from the worries of the world they too will recover.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
