When we’re sad and we’re despondent
And surrounded by much gloom,
Let’s pray for one another
To be lifted from all doom.
When life becomes a maze
And our thoughts a tangled mess,
Let’s lift each other up in prayer
To receive from God what’s best.
When the web inside our mind
Becomes a matrix with no end,
Let’s bow our knees in prayer
So heavenly help the Lord will send.
We’re blessed in many ways
And when we count our blessings indeed,
There’s no need to be jealous or covetous
Or for greed our heart to feed.
Imagine those children tormented
Kidnapped and used as slaves;
For sexual exploitation
Where not much hope will remain.
Imagine those in households
Where violence is on the agenda;
Both physical and verbal as well
And much oppression from the offender.
There will always be someone
In a worse situation than us,
And when we look at the bigger picture
In God we learn to trust.
Regardless of circumstances
Let’s encourage one another;
To never give up or quit the race
Whilst we seek our Heavenly Father.
God knows and sees our suffering
And although He understands same,
He can turn situations around for good
When our faith in Him remains.
Never give up and let’s be encouraged
That the worst of storms will pass,
When we’re hidden under God’s shadow indeed
Where all harm can never last.
This life is filled with troubles
And challenges regularly,
But when we trust in God Almighty
His deliverance we always see.
