A Prayer for Direction in Life
Be the way that guides my journeys in life, O Lord;
Be the sign that points me to God and to living life to the full;
May I see in every person I meet your creative power
And to every person I meet may I be a sign of your love. Amen.
Someone Does Care
I found God in the morning,
We just sat and talked.
I kept Him near me
Everywhere I walked.
I called on God at noontime,
A heart filled with despair.
I felt His quiet presence.
I knew He was there.
We met again at sunset,
The waning of the day.
I had made Him happy.
I had lived His way.
Then when at bedtime I knelt
Silently in prayer,
Again His gentle presence I felt,
“Someone Does Care”.
When you bring Hope into a situation in life, you make room for Love.
