Please Pray

'If thou shouldst never see my face again, pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.'
-Alfred Lord Tennyson

'Lord don't take my tears or my cross away
For I would grow weary and forget to pray.
I want to serve You all of my days,
I'll share You with others along life's way.

Lord may I never take for granted
All the Blessings You send my way,
Let my heart give You all my Praises,
Following Jesus I will never dismay.

For my tears will keep me humble
Though many times I fall and crumble,
Lord grant me strength for each new day,
Lord don't take my tears or my cross away.

Teach me Lord to never grow careless
Or grow weary in my walk each day,
Remind me Lord how much I need You,
Lord don't take my tears or my cross away.

Lord You see each wave as billows roll
You hear each prayer on Earth extol,
You understand every heartache and tear,
I thank You Lord You are always near.

Lord, You promised a better day is coming
Our cross we'll bear no more,
We'll live with You for all Eternity,
Upon Heavens bright and golden shore.'

I believe in God and His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, and I believe you will be light and free of this horrible disease when you meet Him. As always, you're in my prayers.

Love,
Brenda

I am glad that I could take you away to USA for a virtual holiday. It is good that you can get comfort from your faith. My thoughts are with you often.
