Our Prayer Focus

Week of August 28, 2017

When I am lost in doubt and fear I want to run away.
I want to run so far to somewhere I know I can stay.
Stay away from the hurt and anger that builds inside of me.
Stay away from people to a place where I feel free.

So instead of running to tell someone, a friend or on my phone,
I run to where I feel most safe and I am all alone.
Alone with Jesus only is the place that I must go
to ease the desperation that is rising in my soul.

Why did I wait so long to know that He is all I need?
He is who I know will give me wisdom to succeed.
To grow into a strong believer trusting in His love
to know He watches over me protecting from above.

poem by: Norma Spiller
Scripture Psalm142
Focus on verse 6 but read all of chapter 142, please.

Love and prayers

Mark 12:31
The second is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. (ESV)

Without looking - can you quote the first commandment?
