God Hath Not Promised 

by Annie Johnson Flint

God hath not promised skies always blue

     Flower strewn pathways, all our lives through

God hath not promised sun without rain,

     joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

God hath not promised we shall not know

     toil and temptations, trouble and woe;

He hath not told us we shall not bear

     many a burden, many a care.

God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,

     swift, easy travel, needing no guide;

Never a mountain, rocky and steep,

     never a river turbid and deep.

But God hath promised strength for the day,

     rest for the labour, light for the way.

Grace for the trials, help from above,

     unfailing kindness, undying love.

Looking Ahead

from a prayer for the National Day of Prayer

We pray fervently for the Church;

the people called by His name,

as they learn, love, worship, and follow God together.

We pray for those who are members and leaders of His body,

set apart by their relationship with Him as Lord and Savior,

sent to show and share His love and Good News.

Helping them and us remember that we are the Church,

people not a place, His body not a building,

and that we come together to grow in our knowledge and love of Him

and who we are in Him

May God continue to bless our prayer journey together
