When I Pray For You Today


When I read the part where
All those who touched Him were healed
Even if they only touched the edge of his robe
I want to reach out and try to touch His sacred heart now!
Praise Jesus and God bless you all in your journey
To be free from the greed of this world today and tomorrow
But let's work on today first
You don't have to agree with a damn thing I say
I do not shove religion down your throat
Tomorrow may never come
And today may be my last chance to say it
Do not attempt to hate me
I pray for you today
Yesterday is gone
Tomorrow is a promissory note
The serenity prayer is written in present tense as follows

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I can not change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference

It works for me

    i regretted why i did not quote these lines also which are deep and meaningful:
    God grant me the serenity
    To accept the things I can not change
    The courage to change the things I can
    And the wisdom to know the difference...beautiful! ! ! (Report) Reply

    When you pray for someone else God listens attentively.
    When you pray for yourself God listens passively.
    When you pray for your enemies God will evaluate them.
    When you pray pray pray you get answers. (Report) Reply
