“Then Peter said, ‘Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you.’ ” (Acts 3:6)
once carried in my arms, now carried in my heart – time and distance intervene to keep us far apart
yet know, I am loving you today – standing in the gap for you, as you go on your way.
storming heaven’s gates, calling on angels’ care – asking God to watch over you, every mother’s prayer.
praying you sense His presence, when you feel most alone – that you know Christ’s love for you, which on the cross was shown.
asking God to give you strength, when your path grows steep – asking His light in your darkness, the night-light that lets you sleep.
pleading God protect you from dangers that surround – begging Him to guard your heart and lead you on level ground.
asking Him to guide you when the way is no longer clear, asking Him to hold you up when your faith gives way to fear.
praying that you feel His feathers, as He shelters you under His wings – praying that you can hear His voice, as over you He sings.
asking God to meet you on the road you take today – just like Jesus sought out Saul, as Saul traveled on his way.
beseeching Him to heal your hurts, to comfort you in your sorrow – to give you peace in this current day, to fill you with hope for tomorrow.
asking God to make you wise and kind and good and true – praying you will allow Him to have His way in you.
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, . . . I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your heart (s) through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14-19)
sincerely, Grace Day
