Jesus Heard You
Jesus heard when you prayed last night.
Jesus was there when you fought your fight,
He is going to bring you through.

Jesus knew when you shed those tears,
you did not weep alone.
The burdens you thought too heavy to bear,
He made them His very own.

Jesus Himself was touched by that trial,
you could not understand.
Jesus stood by as you almost fell
and lovingly clasped your hand.

Jesus cared when you bore that pain,
indeed, He bore it too.
He felt each pain, each ache in your heart,
because of His love for you.

Jesus, will always be with you,
no need to be anxious or fret.
Wonderful love, He will be there all the time,
He has NEVER forsaken you.

--Corrie Ten Boon


 
 
 
Lord, bless our friends today we pray,
Wherever they may be;
And help them as they go their way,
To keep their trust in Thee.
Lord, hear each prayer they raise to Thee,
And dry each falling tear;
And hover o'er them constantly,
For treasured friends are dear.
Surround them with Thy mercy,
Lord, Protect them by Thy power;
And let them feel Thy presence,
Lord, In every lonely hour. 
Stand by them when the road is steep,
And no one seems to care;
Thy arm of love around them keep,
And whisper You are there. 
And give them strength to bear the cross,
As through this vale they go;
And stand by them in every loss,
That they meet here below. 
And when at last the hour shall be,
That life's short journey ends;
O, let them lean the more on Thee,
And comfort these, our friends. 
And open heaven's gate, dear Lord,
And let them enter there;
For heaven will be heaven,
Lord, Because our friends are there.

God still sits on the throne. Each of you is going through a tough time right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.

This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive. There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

Here is the prayer:

Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and buddies. Show them a new revelation of Your love and power.

Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment.

Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy.

Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace.

Bless their homes, family, finances, their goings and their comings.

In Jesus' precious name.

Amen.

Have a blessed day!  Thanks for the prayers. 

 God bless,
