I Thank You My Heavenly Father (A Prayer)

cropped-024.jpg

I thank You, my heavenly Father
For the physical and spiritual food
Wherewith You will feed me this day
I thank you for holding me in the palm of Your hand
I thank you that even though the wounds have healed
On Jesus, they continue to bleed
For the souls of those who walk in darkness
(The cross and His shed blood are there for all)
I thank you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made
And that You, and only You, know everything about me
There is no bondage within me that You cannot break
There is no sickness hidden within me that You cannot heal
There is no sin within me that You cannot bring into the light
And forgive, once I am given the discernment to ask
For forgiveness upon realizing the depth and hideousness
Of that sin, those sins
Thank you for each and every breath
Mine and those of my loved ones
Thank you for the food on our table
Please bless it to our bodies
Please feed those who are hungry
The clothes on our backs
Please cover and wrap those who are naked
The shelter of our homes
Please cover and protect us this day, this night
Please cover those who are homeless, wandering
For our employment
Please open doors for those who desperately need
Or truly want to work and provide for themselves, loved ones
The love of family and friends
Please send love to those who are hurting
Who can walk along side them and catch their tears
Thank you bringing us through fiery trials
Unscathed
Thank you for being in our lives, always
Once we acknowledge You and that we need You
You are God and God alone
Almighty, awesome, perfect
Ever living, ever giving
Your hand bears endless gifts
Your heart shares endless love
Your life gives endless life
Through Jesus Christ our Saviour
Father, I lift all unto You
Who are suffering at this very moment
Who have lost loved ones
Who are awaiting news of loved ones
Who don’t know which way to turn
Who have turned and can’t face what meets them
Who are unwell, dying
Those who are well and don’t know that they are sick
Physically, spiritually
Those who don’t know You
Save them
Do know You
Keep them
Those who are being persecuted
Persecuted for Thy Name’s sake
Those who are feeling abandoned
Are abandoned, hopeless
Feeling unworthy, unloved
The poor and the needy
The widows and the orphans
The addicted, the lost
The afflicted, the abused
Man and animal, abused
Abusing
Forgive them, forgive me
Be glorified, magnified
May Thy Name be lifted on high
Father, I love You
You are mine and I am Yours
For Your precious Word says so
I commit this day to You
Please walk me through the wilderness
The dry river bed
Into the place of joy everlasting
In Jesus Name
Amen

THE MENDER OF BROKEN HEARTS (Song Lyrics)

breaking heart
Chorus
Oh! Jesus, Jesus
You are the mender of broken hearts
You set the captives free
You open the eyes of the blinded ones
You offer sweet liberty
Oh! You offer sweet liberty

What to do when a loved one is hurting
And tears are unable to be released
Father in heaven, please draw Your child close
And comfort until the pains, they are ceased

What to do when a loved one is crying
Silent rivers of emptiness, regret
Wanting to turn back the hands of time past
Wanting to change memories and forget

Chorus
Oh! Jesus, Jesus
You are the mender of broken hearts
You set the captives free
You open the eyes of the blinded ones
You offer sweet liberty
Oh! You offer sweet liberty

What to do when hugs, they aren’t possible
’Cause aching arms of love can’t reach that far
Oh! Sweetest child of mine may you just know
How wonderful and beautiful you are

And there is only one thing I can do
Is lift you into the sweet arms of Love
I come before You heavenly Father
And send this pain of my loved one above

Chorus
Oh! Jesus, Jesus
You are the mender of broken hearts
You set the captives free
You open the eyes of the blinded ones
You offer sweet liberty
Oh! You offer sweet liberty

PLEASE HUG THEM (A Song for Those Who Are Hurting)

Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst and poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despaired with no income
Families torn, separated
Floods, droughts, fires, storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Amongst them that are so close
Feeling left behind, worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

So that is why, I now cry
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Oh Lord! Reveal Your great Name

Bridge
Hug them like they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till pure love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees bring them to the floor
Hug them till with joy they praise and adore

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away
