Sunlight

You give everyone your sunlight,
You give everyone your rain;

You give everyone your Son, Lord,
You give everyone your name.

So everyone deserves our kindness,
Everyone deserves our love;

Everyone deserves our help,
So earth becomes like heaven above.

We can’t give hope

We can’t give hope to others
When we have none of our own.

We can’t love other people
When we hate to be alone.

We can’t guide other people
When we do not know the way,

Nor help them find their heaven
When we live in hell each day.

Your will be done

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10; NIV).

Lord,
May your will be done on earth,
As it is in heaven.

Please help me to accept
That the past cannot be changed;

That what is now,
Is just as it should be;

And that what will be
Is in accordance with your will.

So, may your will be done on earth,
As it is in heaven.

The stairway

As he slept, he dreamed of a stairway that reached from the earth up to heaven. And he saw the angels of God going up and down the stairway. At the top of the stairway stood the LORD (Genesis 28:12-13; NLT).

“I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth” (John 1:51; NLT).

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6; NLT).


Lord Jesus,
You are the stairway
Between earth and heaven,
For none can come to God,
Except through you.
