In prayer

Pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf
(1 Timothy 2:1; NLT). 


In prayer,
I often ask you to do things:
To bless, comfort, strengthen
And heal others;

To help me accept
All you send,
Yet still, somehow,
To serve you.

But today, I’m not asking you
To do anything at all;
For I am content
To rest in your presence,

Absorbing your warmth, light
And peace, Lord,
Your truth,
And your love.

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength” (Isaiah 30:15; NLT).

    • Thanks for that, Alan. If you have the energy, please could you pray for me today? I’m going to the breast cancer clinic for review. As I have deteriorated so much, it could be a significant appointment. Don’t worry if you don’t have time, though. May God bless you both, with love from Ruth xxxxxx

      • Thank you so much, Alan. I really appreciate your prayers. What I really want is some kind of explanation for why I’ve deteriorated so much, though I not hopeful of receiving one. Then I could perhaps either receive treatment, or accept that I’m just going to continue to get worse. Knowing the truth is always best! XXXXXX
