Crisis Prayer

Ten K
Lansing, Michigan, 1983

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Almighty Father,

Praise be to you oh Lord for you have covered me with you wings

even as my heart and mind have been weary and body fails me and

the sun’s heat bears down on me days and

cold winds whip about me through the night.

Forgive my weakness though it tears my soul and leaves me an embarrassment to my family and friends.

Thank you for your protection and comforting presence that remind of your goodness and mercy.

In the power of your Holy Spirit, grant me renewed strength,

that my joints and ligaments may bear my weight

as I strive to run the good race all the days of my life.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
