A Prayer For Help - Poem by Helen Urda Smith

Lord hear us as we humbly pray.
Help those in sorrow, deep despair;
Help them all their cross to bear
The ravages of flood and wind;
Loss of family, homes, jobs everything.
Give them the strength to carry on
And wake up to a bright new dawn.
We ask this in your Holy name
Thank You Lord
