It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength:
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint
Isaiah 40:31
When your life is not going so well, do you ask, "How long?" beforesomething good happens?
Do you ever ask, "How long,
O Lord, how long? My soul is in anguish. How long, O Lord, how long? Turn, O Lord,and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. No oneremembers you when he is dead. Who praises you from the grave? I amworn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weepingand drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; theyfail because of all my foes. Away from me, all you who do evil, forthe Lord has heard my weeping. The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;the Lord accepts my prayer. All my enemies will be ashamed anddismayed; they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
Psalm 6:3-10
When you ask, "How long?" remember the response: The Lord has heard mycry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer.

Waiting is a part of the divine design of things. Waiting is no accident, it is purposed.While we may not be able to do what we would most like to do, we can do what God has given us to do, while we wait on the Lord to fulfill His promises and purposes.
You can almost always plan on the fact that God will make you wait for what is best. He is never late, but He is also seldom quick. But of this fact I can assure you: When God's plan is for you to wait, He will make it all worth the wait.

For Those Who Pray For Others

For every single child of God,
there is a secret place,
where we can go to hide and pray,
and seek our Fathers face.

A place where no one else can tread
where no one else can go,
we find there grace and solitude,
and peace for our weary soul.

We fold our hands and close our eyes,
as we kneel before the Lord,
in the closet of our mind we step,
inside and close the door.

We pray according to His will,
and ask in Jesus' name,
we know our Father hears us,
for His Word says just the same.

We ask the Lord to heal the sick,
to bless the broken hearted,
have mercy on the sinners soul,
and peace to the just departed.

We pray "dear Lord please hear my cry!,
I'm praying now for others,
I've never seen or met them but,
they're my sisters and my brothers.

And Lord you know the special need,
that binds their lives today,
please bless them Lord and heal them all,
In Jesus name we pray.

And for the ones unsaved Oh Lord,
we pray a special prayer,
please lead and guide and keep them,
in your tender loving care.

Lord send them Heavens Angels
to soften their hearts of stone,
and give them peace inside Lord,
and save their precious souls.

And for the ones who hate you
with bitterness and disdain,
who curse their very souls Lord,
when they take your name in vain.

We pray Lord please have mercy,
and shower them with grace,
forgive them of their sins Lord,
In Jesus' name we pray.

And Father pave the way for me,
to touch someone today,
to help them come to know you,
in that very special way.

That you loved the world so much you gave,
your Son on the cross to die,
that you wish for no one to perish,
but for all everlasting life.

We pray for the ones who pray for those,
who have a special need,
we ask you Lord to bless them all,
As they pray on bended knee.

In the lives of those they're praying for,
we ask you to provide,
all things the soldiers ask in prayer,
please hear their humble cry.

In Jesus' name we ask today,
according to thy perfect will,
doubting not we now believe
as we give we shall receive.

Thank you father for your Love,
your Mercy and your Grace,
thank you for this time of prayer,
to seek your righteous face.

We praise you Lord and love you,
we glorify your Holy name,
and we thank you Holy Spirit,
we're so joyful that you came.

Now as we go about our way,
let us share the joy you give,
let us sing with happy heart and soul,
within us your Spirit lives.

We ask according to thy will,
In Jesus name we send,
this prayer to you on angels wings,
Amen Oh Lord Amen.

God bless America
And keep us safe and free,
Safe from "all our enemies"
Wherever they may be.

For enemies are forces
That often dwell within,
Things that seem so harmless
Become a major sin.

Little acts of selfishness
Grow into lust and greed,
And make the love of power
Our idol and our creed.

For all our wealth and progress
Are as worthless as can be,
Without the faith that made us great
And kept our nation free.

And while it's hard to understand
The complexities of war,
Each one of us must realize
That we are fighting for
The principles of freedom
And the decency of man,
But all of this much be achieved
According to God's plan.

So help us as Americans
To search deep down inside,
And discover if the things we do
Are always justified.

And teach us to walk humbly
And closer in Thy ways,
And give us faith and courage
And put purpose in our days.

And make each one of us aware
That each must do his part,
For in the individual is where peace
Must have its start.

For a better world to live in
Where all are safe and free,
Must start with faith and hope
And love deep in the heart of "Me."

~ Helen Steiner Rice ~

Remember to keep praying for our miltary folks near and far
and for Peace in the world.
