Open Invitation

Any time and any day
In any place
People may pray

Any hope and any care
And any praise
Fits into prayer

Any heartache, any fears
Any thankful words
Or tears

Nothing is too small or great
For our God
To mediate

Any hunger, hurt or need
God, our God
Can intercede

At the altar of belief
Humble hearts may
Find relief

Anyone and anywhere
May call upon God
In prayer

Aren't you thankful, so thankful, the way to God's ear is never closed!
On that note, can you pray for my friend Diane, still on a hard cancer journey!
She came through the surgery (for a complex form of endometrial cancer) very well 
but is struggling with some after-effects like bleeding, infection etc. all being controlled but it takes much time, patience and trust!
She values prayer dearly to help keep her looking up!

Psalm 66:16-20
Come and hear, all who fear God,
            And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.
      I cried to Him with my mouth,
            And He was extolled with my tongue.
      If I regard wickedness in my heart,
            The Lord will not hear;
      But certainly God has heard;
            He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
      Blessed be God,
            Who has not turned away my prayer
            Nor His lovingkindness from me.


  1. The Lord has so blessed me, the only thing I asked is how can I serve.

  2. Praying is such a privilege. To think the God of the universe hears us ... how amazing is that.

    1. yes! unfathomable love and mercy! prayng for my friend's son right now, who is sick!
