The Answer to Prayer
Our paths crossed,
arranged by God Himself.
He answered your prayers.
He heard mine.
How kind of our God to give us one another
As the answers to our prayers.
“Holy Spirit, make us sensitive to Your promptings.
Quiet our busy season with Your peace.
You are as close as our very breath.
As You whisper gentle instructions,
Make us bold to obey.
As a Helper, make us able to shine Christ’s Love and Light
Into a hurting World,
Not only in words but so much more in deeds.
Help us see that you might be using us
In Your answer to someone’s prayers.”
“It will also come to pass that before they call,
I will answer; and while they are still speaking,
I will hear.
