Today I’ll do what should be done
That I have long ignored,
And I will fill this day with deeds
That Jesus will adore.
I’ll help my neighbors and my friends
With needs for which they pray,
And I will visit sleeping loves
In places where they lay.
I’ll give of self and all I own
To crown this given day
And cater to my loves of life,
Who share the prayers I say.
I will not shun a single heart
That pleads for love or care,
But give to them the gifts of grace
God gives to me to share.
Prayer lends a peace to heart and mind
With hurts and worries left behind,
A chance to talk to God above,
To find a faith — and know His love,
And ever make His will our own —
The greatest hope we’ve ever known.
Prayer is our avenue to God;
It holds a part of sky and sod,
A gentleness that fills our soul
And helps us realize our goal.
Determining what each day brings,
It gives our weary body wings.
We need a quiet time, it seems,
If we would realize our dreams,
A courage that we fondly keep
Through waking hours or those in sleep.
Whatever hurts or trials you bear,
Take time to talk to God in prayer.
