Quiet Time With You
The first thing in the morning,
Is my quiet time with You.
I need to talk about life,
And what You would have me do.
How can I make a difference?
How do You want me to pray?
How do I feel accomplished Lord,
At the end of each and every day?
I feel like an empty vessel,
So fill me with Your Word.
Pour my heart out to others,
In this lost and troublesome world.
I am too tired and old now,
To work hard every day,
So what will you have me to do.
What would you have me to say?
I pray over my Family,
My friends, country and world.
I can help fight their battles,
By going to Your Word.
Your Word has many promises,
That I will try to reach,
But I have a sharing heart,
And a strong desire to teach.
I will tell the world of patience,
And a love that will endure,
When their hearts are filled with doubt,
I will tell them of love so pure.
I will tell them of the Truth.
I will tell them You are the way,
While I hold some of the same worries,
At the end of each day.
I have some of the worries,
But I let go of the fear.
I know Who holds my tomorrow,
And Who loves me so dear.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
When I worked in the nursing home for so many years, some of the residents would let me know that they no longer felt a purpose in their lives. They were too tired and old to accomplish working tasks on a schedule, as they did in their younger days. I would assure them that they still had a purpose in life and that one thing they could do was to pray. I would tell them just to look around and every day they would see a staff member who was in need of prayer over their circumstances in life. I believe that God has a special heart for the children in their innocence, and for the elders in their stamina and wisdom. Now that I find myself on the upper end of the life chain, I spend more time in prayer time with God. I just go there to chat at times. He knows my inner thoughts, but I talk to Him about them anyway. I ask Him for favor on my family and friends. Then I ask for protection and wisdom for our nation and then our world. I know He has the power to change things for the better. My prayer life feeds my faith so that I can rest in the peace of knowing that God has everything under control.
