Life is fragile: Handle with prayer

Remember that Jesus will always be there
To hear our problems and to gather our tears,
To calm the storms, and to settle the fears.
It does not matter how great or how small,
Jesus will answer to our every call.
Just call on the Lord, it matters not when-
His office is not closed at half-past ten.

He's never on lunch, He can't take a break;
If He did, this old world would just crumble and shake.
His lines are never busy, He won't put you on hold.
He won't ask you twice what He's already been told.
There's no account number, nor address to give;
No matter where you've moved, He knows where you live.
Yes, the Lord always answers, He never leaves home.
He won't leave us to handle it all on our own

So when things get rough, and things aren't fair,
Remember: Life is fragile, so handle with prayer.

  2. This is great! nice way to end the week, have a wonderful weekend! it's looking a bit grey here but it will be good I'm sure!

  3. I am sure that if we handled everything in our lives with prayer our problems would be fewer and those problems would not seem like huge mountains but only bumps in our journeys. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem. Nell

  4. Great reminder - just when I needed it!

  5. Great Words, thank you for sharing

  6. There are days when only my faith delivers me through life's storms--

  7. I used this same poem some weeks back too :-)
    It is really good isn't it?!
    Life is fragile..and prayer is so needful but many souls don't know the Lord and have nobody to pray for them.
    We christians should keep them in mind too when we pray.
    Thanks for sharing this lovely poem.
    ps. your new blog header is very pretty!!

  8. Lily-Rose Cottage: I thought I had read it somewhere else but couldn't remember where, perhaps it was your blog. I hope you don't mine me using it, I just loved it and the reminder is always very good:)

  9. Great...I was trying to explain this fact to my son just days ago..and what a great reminder it is
