PRAISE IN TIME OF DISTRESS









 DEAR FATHER~THANK YOU
Lyrics to an Original Song 

PRAISE IN TIME OF DISTRESS
       

Thank You for love beyond compare
Thank You for gentle, tender care
When pain I can no longer bear,
Thank You for keeping me


Thank You for raising me above
Thank You for warm, unfailing love
And for Your power that won't be moved
Thank You for life in Christ

When paths are blocked...

When doors are closed...

You draw me to your heart


With sweet repose


And make a way



Thank You for joy of saving grace
And for the strength of Your embrace.
Thank You for life in Christ
        My All in All  
     (c) carol castagna  Oct. 2012  

He knows us by name...
Isaiah 49:16 Your name is written on the palm of my hand


DEAR FATHER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL PROMISE OF PROTECTION AND NEARNESS.  YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH US AND WE THANK YOU FOR THE REALITY OF YOUR PRESENCE.  WE PRAY THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO ENABLE US TO SENSE YOUR PRESENCE DAILY IN WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES WE MAY FIND OURSELVES, FOR 'IN YOUR PRESENCE IN FULLNESS OF JOY.'  SHOWER US WITH THE BLESSED ASSURANCE OF YOUR SWEET PRESENCE ON A DAILY BASIS AND THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING.



IN THE PRECIOUS NAME OF JESUS,
AMEN
