                         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.
