Hello! Is That You God?   Leave a comment


Hello God, I called tonight

To talk a little while

I need a friend who’ll listen

To my anxiety and trial.

You see, I can’t quite make it 

Through a day just on my own… 

I need your love to guide me, 

So I’ll never feel alone. 

 

I want to ask you please to keep, 

My family safe and sound. 

Come and fill their lives with confidence 

For whatever fate they’re bound. 

Give me faith, dear God, to face 

Each hour throughout the day, 

And not to worry over things 

I can’t change in any way. 

 

I thank you God, for being home 

And listening to my call, 

For giving me such good advice 

When I stumble and fall..  !!!!!!!

Your number, God, is the only one 

That answers every time. 

I never get a busy signal, 

Never had to pay a dime. 

 

So thank you, God, for listening

To my troubles and my sorrow.

Good night, God, I love You, too,

And I’ll call again tomorrow!

P.S.  Please bless all my friends and family too.

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us hold you in our hearts,

as did Mary, your mother.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us care for your children in the world

as Saint Joseph cared for you.

Come Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

Let us sing joyfully of your glory

as did your angels in Bethlehem.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

May we kneel to adore you

as did the lowly shepherds.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, Lord Jesus Christ!

You are the Morningstar,

who guided the magi, guiding us still.

Come, Emmanuel!

We prepare your way, O Christ child,

God’s Word in our human flesh,

through the power of the Holy Spirit

God among us, forever and ever.  Amen

With the dawning day,

I rise to praise you, O Lord.

As I watch and wait  for the coming

of your Son, our Savior,

help me to be a faithful servant

in these Advent days.  Amen
