In Hard Times and Good Times

Father, I pray for all those in need,
For all of my friends and my family.
I pray for your strength to see us all through,
When life is the hardest and when times are good.

Father, when life seems to throw us a curve,
When we are unsettled, upset and unnerved.
I pray for your wisdom to carry us through,
When life is the hardest and when times are good.

Father, there is never a good time for sorrow,
Or the pain of uncertainty that comes with tomorrow.
I pray for your goodness to see us all through,
When life is the hardest and when times are good.

Father, you promised in your Holy Word
To never forsake us—of this we're assured.
I pray for our Savior to carry us through,
When life is the hardest and when times are good.

Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer,
I thank you for Jesus who showed us he cared.
I pray your Spirit to to see us all through,
When life is the hardest and when times are good.
