Sunday Prayer



Lord, You have always given
Bread for the coming day,
and though I am poor,
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always given
strength for the coming day
And though I am weak,
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always given
Peace for the coming day,
and though I am of anxious heart,
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always kept
Me safe in trials,
And now, tried as I am,
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always marked
The road for the coming day
And though it may be hidden,
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always lightened
This darkness of mine,
And though the night is here,m
Today I believe.

Lord, You have always spoken
When time was ripe,
And though You be silent now,
Today I believe.

  2. A beautiful prayer. There is a musical setting as well but I can't place my hand on the disk to give you the title.

    Between services this morning, I ate a belated breakfast - working on the sermon from 5:30 to 7:00 - and then I happened to pick up a book called Heaven, edited by Roger Ferlo. I have read some of the pieces but not the whole book. My bookmark was set on an essay by Maggie Robbins, a psychotherapist and told the story of a woman's near death experience. The short version is that in heaven, everyone lives in the servants' part of the house. Eventually, the nobility figure it out and land down there, too. Needless to say, this piece made it into my sermon at 10:30. Thanks be to God for the tiny signposts that crop up in life.
