(670) A Prayer For David Harris

Father God, I come to you again this morning to ask for your
help. Lord one of poem hunters precious writers David Harris
is in a hospital bed after having several small strokes. I thank
you Father for not allowing the big one to touch him.

Father I ask that you cover David with the blood of Jesus, to
protect him and keep him out of harms way. I ask that you
give him the strength he needs in order to quit smoking, for
this is a difficult addiction to beat. I know with your help
Father anything is possible.

Father if David is dealing with a great deal of stress in his
life, I ask that you teach him how to deal with it in a non
harmful way.

Father God I pray for a healing for David, a complete recovery
Lord. Help him to walk away from the hospital feeling well,
with the desire to give up his addiction and the want to live and
enjoy his life.

Father, David is a loving husband, father and Grandfather. He
Just recently welcomed a new addition into his family, the birth
of his lovely grand-daughter. Give him the time he needs to get
to know her and enjoy her. Give David the strength he needs in
order to play with her and protect her.

Father, David is a wonderful writer and still has much to put down
on paper. I look forward to reading many more poems from
David, Lord give him the ability to continue in his writing. Lord
you know I’ll never question you, I’ll just ask for your blessings.

I ask this prayer Lord in the name of your precious son “Jesus”
Sweet, sweet Jesus. Amen

    Mel, thank you very much for this lovely prayer. A big HUG is coming your way. I had tears in my eyes when I read it and the wonderful comments below. I'm going to have to write a very special poem for everyone. I am on the mend hope to be posting a couple of poems tomorrow. I also intend to be finished with smoking before Christmas. I have cut it by half already. However thank you again for this beautiful prayer.
    Love and Hugs

And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
