A Prayer for Today

Lord, it’s early in the morning

And I’m still awake,

Thinking about people who are in situations

That are so hard to take.

Friends who have been in and out of the hospital

For such a very long time,

With long roads still before them

And hills they’ve yet to climb.


And this world Lord, it just seems

Like it’s totally falling apart,

No longer do you read about

Occasional shots in the dark,

But hatred and violence abound

In oh so many ways

And evil walks around boldly

In the very light of day.

Some have even sworn to make targets

Of those who serve and protect,

I don’t know what they’re thinking,

Their reason and morals are wrecked.


But Lord I know You are aware

Of all we are going through

And today I ask You to intervene 

Like only You can do.

Send healing to our nation 

And bring peace Lord I pray,

May Your love and righteousness flow, 

Let justice rule the day.


And Lord, comfort your people 

During these troubling times,

Calm our spirits within us 

And ease our hearts and minds.

Help us to minister to those around us, 

Give us the grace to meet their needs, 

And help us offer this world solutions, 

Along with Your love and good deeds.

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
