Because you are God, I can ask what I will
I can bring to you all of those who are ill
I can name everyone whose thoughts bring unease
And all of the many plagued by disease.
Those bodies betrayed by sickness, severe
Those families in crisis who don’t feel you near.
Because you are God, you feel every pain
Because you are God, you know them by name.
I bring them, I leave them, knowing each is a part
Of your sacred, compassionate, all loving heart.
I’ll remind you today; I’ll remind you tomorrow
Please God bless the many with hearts full of sorrow.
Saint James, pray for us that we may be willing to leave everything to follow Jesus as you did. Help us to become special friends of Jesus as you were. Amen
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
