My prayer for those struggling through trials this day
Is for grace beyond measure, and light for the way,
Strength to endure, and the faith to hold on,
Patience in waiting, and hope that is strong;
Peace that could only be sent from above,
Springing from rivers of comfort and love;
Joy with dawn, as His mercies are new,
And assurance from One who is Faithful and True.
Each of these promised in God’s precious Word
Assure me my prayer has been faithfully heard.
And since God is love, I know He will attend
To this prayer of my heart for my suffering friend.
“The urgent request of a righteous person
is very powerful in its effect.”
James 5:16b HCSB
