When I Don't Know What to Do

The most beautiful song.

This is the perfect song to listen to while praying for loved ones.
It speaks to the very core of my soul--because
I never know what to do or what to say.
Thank God--He's God,
always on His throne.
He does know what to do

And though we'll never understand...
we trust Him, don't we?
when we don't know what to do.

Let your healing come, Lord, let your healing come...
to Eric
to Alvaro
to the man across town who's contemplating suicide...
to a friend who's so incredibly lonely
to a 93 year old friend, Lord, who's so tired of being on this earth
to a friend who fell and hurt her knee.
to fathers and mothers who are sick and alone with nothing but memories
Let your perfect healing come.

We need you, Lord.
We trust you Lord...
only you...
when we don't know what to do.
Let your healing come.

Note: Our one-year-old nephew went to live with Jesus today. Please pray for his parents, his three year old brother and his grandparents as they face this tragedy.

It has the most perfect words. I check on your young friend's progress everyday and say a prayer for him and his family. what must his brother be going through?

Jess, my heart breaks for the family who lost their baby. I will keep them and you in my prayers.

May you and your family find peace, healing peace. My prayers are with you.

I'm going to double-dip here, because the first time I read this, I didn't catch the bottom part (have been real sick myself lately).

I am so sorry for your loss. There are no other words I can say, but "I'm praying for you."

Laurie, the last part wasn't on there when you commented before. Sorry...I added it which made your comment look totally inappropriate. I'm sorry. I appreciate everyone's prayers. You're all so special to me.

Thank you, darlin' girl, for praying for me. Your prayers and encouragement mean a lot to me and I'm sure, to others also. I'm sure everyone is continuing to pray for Eric. Angie's updates are amazing. Pat
