prayers ...

news arrived this week
of two friends in pain
one who lost both parents last year
another facing cancer and chemo

there are days when I let my worries
become bigger than they are
and days when I am reminded how much
I have to be grateful for

right now
I'm grateful for my friends
and I'm lifting them up
in prayer

Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. 
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
~ Psalm 23:4 NLT ~

When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.
~ Psalm 94:19 NLT ~

Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles.
~ Psalm 119:50 NLT ~

God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
~ Matthew 5:4 NLT ~


  1. I am so sorry. For your friends, and for the pain you feel for and with them.
