TODAY HAS BEEN SO HARD, LORD...

Today has been so hard, LORD...
Listening to the news.
The pain being suffered by others,
Such misery caused by those who abuse.
Please, Touch each tortured soul, LORD... Wrap them in Your Love!

Today has been so hard, LORD...
Becoming more aware.
Your Wonderful World, Its Beauty and Provision sacrificed...
All to serve Mammon... with never a care for the price!
Please, Redress the balance, LORD... Open their eyes!

Today has been so hard, LORD...
Knowing war has come.
To so many hurting people all around the world.
No real reason beyond bigotry, hatred, envy, or greed, unfurled!
Please, be The Champion of wronged people, LORD... Bring Your Peace!

Today has been so hard, LORD...
Knowing I have failed.
I want to be Your 'Salt and Light',
To help to set Your World aright.
Please, Forgive me, LORD - and... Help me to forgive myself!

Today has been so hard, LORD...
What must it have been like for You?
I am Your Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Feet and Hands,
With millions of others throughout all the lands.
Thank You, for The Privilege to watch and pray...
And hand each care to You each day...

Please, Grant me sleep, LORD, knowing that You are in Control!!!
