I pray to you

1. I pray to you,
The Christ, who came
To save us all
From sin and shame.

2. I call on you,
The Christ, who dwelled
On earth, God’s Son,

3. I plead with you,
The Christ, who died
For all: my Saviour,
And my Guide.

4. I worship you,
The Christ, who rose
From death; through whom
God’s mercy flows.



1. Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15; NLT).

2. Call on him now while he is near (Isaiah 55:6; NLT).

God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him (1 John 4:9; NLT).

You have no equal (Psalm 40:5; NLT).

3. Plead with the Almighty (Job 8:5; NIV).

Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God (1 Peter 3:18; NLT).

He has sent us a mighty Saviour (Luke 1:69; NLT).

He guides me along right paths (Psalm 23:3; NLT).

4. Worship Christ as Lord of your life (1 Peter 3:15; NLT).

He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit (1 Peter 3:18; NLT).

God […] called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ (Galatians 1:6; NLT).

    • Hi Alan, thank you for your like, I’m in hospital this morning, having treatment for chronic neurological pain. How are you both? xxxx

      • I will pray for you Ruth! Generally we are well but I injured my back yesterday, thus I am struggling physically today. Historically I have a damaged back from previous years of lifting work.

      • Thank you so much for your prayers. Alan. I’m just back at home, cold, shocked and in a lot of pain. I’m so very sorry you’ve hurt your back. I know what it’s like as I too had a serious lifting injury at work (46 years ago), and have always suffered repeated issues with it. I’m praying right now that it will settle as quickly as possible, and I’m sure you’re doing all the right things to look after it. xxxx

      • Day 2 is just as bad as day one regarding the stiffness and pain, and there is the after effects of not getting much sleep. We are linked by His blood my dear sister, and by our prayers for each other. In Him we are strong.

      • Yes, the first 48 hours are always the worst with a back injury, plus the poor sleep just makes everything feel worse. Lying face-down on a folded blanket on the floor, with a pillow under my tummy can be helpful. I’m very faint and breathless today, with nausea – I think it’s because I had to take more morphine than usual. Keeping very still and quiet. I do hope you will gradually start to improve, Alan xxxxxx
