Come Quickly

Come QuicklyCome quickly to us,

O Lord, do not delay;

mighty Deliverer,

be our help today.

The need is so great,

a painful poverty;

not for lacking in wealth,

but for Your healing.

Desperate the need,

as death knocks on the door;

she trusts You are faithful,

she needs You, still more.

A touch of Your hand,

the warmth of Your embrace;

be hidden in Your wings,

pour Your love and grace.

Your peace that passes,

what is known to mankind;

fill her overflowing,

body, soul and mind.

Oh dear Beloved,

heal as only You can;

restore unto body,

that which You have planned.

“Yet I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my Help and my Deliverer; O Lord, do not delay.” – (Psalm 70:5)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can come to You and cry out, and You hear every hope that our hearts hold. Thank You that Your love is far greater than our needs. Thank You that You are faithful to walk beside us, even when the road feels like a cliff we are about to fall off. Forgive us for fearing what our eyes see, and help us to see things through Yours. Thank You that for You, solutions are simple and paths are plain. We lift up our loved ones with needs that are known, and ask for Your wisdom and grace to guide us as we walk alongside. Be the Healer and the Prince of Peace, as You continue to hold our hands and hearts. May we move in the light of Your love so that many may come to know all that You offer. We love You Lord. Amen.

Anne update: Yesterday was very difficult, as Anne’s pain was far beyond what most of us could bear. It is a helpless feeling to know that we are unable to make it all better. However, we have a God who can. Please continue to contend with me for Anne’s healing, and for His comfort to cover her in the wait. Thank You so much for joining me in prayer, as Anne travels this difficult road. Love and blessings to all. – Shannon
