I prayed for thee today

A lovely poem by Vicki Baird – to help us as we pray for our friends.

I prayed for thee today,
To the God Who has all power
That He would keep thee close to Him
And strengthen Thee this hour,
And that thou be conformed to Christ
In Whom thy life is hid
And reflect to all the Father’s love
As Christ our Savior did.
I prayed that thou might know Him well
And delight thyself in Him
Who sacrificed Himself for thee
And cleansed thee of thy sin
I prayed thy eyes be lifted high
To Him enthroned above
Until He brings us home to Him
Upon His beams of love.

—Vicki Baird
