When we cannot see you


When we cannot see you
Face to face,
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than faith. 

When we’re really struggling 
To cope,
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than hope.

When we start to doubt 
You’re there, above, 
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than love.

When its time for us 
To say Adieu, 
Nothing’s more important, Lord, 
Than you.   



Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).

Have faith in God (Mark 11:22; NLT).

We put our hope in the Lord (Psalm 33:20; NLT).

If we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us (1 John 4:12; NLT).

We brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave (1 Timothy 6:7; NLT).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind (Luke 10:27; NLT).


God within

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

Love him and serve him with all your heart and soul (Deuteronomy 10:12; NLT).



God within,
Free from sin,
May I pray
Throughout today.

God without,
Free from doubt,
May I rejoice
And lift my voice.

God so near,
Free from fear,
May I thank you
And love you, too.

God beside,
Free from pride,
May I serve you
In all I do.


When I’m anxious…

I pray that God, the source of all hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him (Romans 15:13; NLT).

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7; NLT).

When I’m anxious,
Please help me to find peace
In you.

When I’m depressed,
Please help me to find joy
In you.

When I despair,
Please help me to find hope
In you.

When I lose faith,
Please help me to believe and trust
In you.

I ask all this
Through Jesus’ name,
