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.
