My Earnest Prayer

                                                        Today I pray for others Lord
                                                        who seem less blessed than I
                                                        may they have food upon their table
                                                        and a bed at night to lie

                                                        May the sorrow placed upon their hearts
                                                        take wings in earnest flight
                                                        and they choose to hold your hand Lord
                                                        even after the sun shines bright

                                                        For those in pain of body
                                                        Dear Lord please make them whole
                                                        those in doubt, in need of faith
                                                        fullfill their yearning soul

                                                        The shadow of hatred in this world
                                                         Oh Lord please set it free
                                                         to be replaced forever more
                                                         by your tender love and mercy

                                                         Dear Lord thank you for your blessings
                                                         and listening to my prayer
                                                         in you I find my refuge
                                                         because you truly care

                                                         Susie Swanson

Sorry folks, it's still a no go with the comments. I can only post on the blogs that I can click Publish Comment after I leave one. I can't even sign in on mine. I've tried everything, even went to Blogger Help Forum.
They say I need to Delete my files to remove a Cookie that apparently is causing the authenication to go through when I try to sign in, but to be prepared to lose my Homepage, etc. I'm afraid to do that for fear that I won't be able to recover it all. So until then, I say Thank  you to everyone for the wonderful comments and I cherish them all. I do read your posts and have tried to comment on several only to no avail. My patience is running pretty thin these days.  I will continue to read every post possible and comment on the ones that I can.. Blessings, Susie



  1. That is truly a beautiful prayer/poem Susie! Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful and heartfelt words. Got your comments on my post and I thank you for each one. Sorry you are having trouble with posting. Hopefully they will get it resolved quickly. Have a blessed day! Randy

  2. This is such a beautiful poem and prayer, Susie. Very well written.

  3. This is a wonderful prayer!! I needed this tonight!

    I'm having blogger trouble too.

  4. Hi Susie! This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read! It is very faith strengthening and really touches my heart. Your blog is always so uplifting, and I look forward to each new post! Thank you for the note you sent to my email! I'm sorry you are still having these problems, it sounds like it is a good idea to wait for your son. I know how frustrating it can be, I couldn't comment for a couple of weeks a few months ago. Rest assured that we know you are out there! I miss your comments too, but it will make it even more special when it is up and working again! I hope you had a nice weekend. I got to go to a bon fire party Saturday night. It was actually chilly! It felt good to be cold again. I know that sounds odd, but I am so ready for autumn this year! :) I made a big macaroni salad and about thirty people came to the party. It was sure a lot of fun, I haven't felt up to doing anything like that for awhile. I sure appreciated the part in your poem about God helping those with "pain of body". It really touched my heart! I also gave Tony another cooking lesson this weekend and we made apple pies. He did a great job! I hope you have a nice restful evening and a happy day tomorrow! Delisa :)

  5. This is so beautiful and comforting, Susie...

    I know what you're going through with the comments- the same thing happened to me. I just cleared my "browsing history" and it worked fine after that and I didn't lose a thing. You can email me if you would like some more detailed instructions- I'll be glad to help because someone helped me. ((HUGS))

  6. Susie, you're a very talented poet. Love this one. Sorry to hear you're encountering problems. I would definitely try clearing your cache as Paula suggested.

  7. This is a beautiful poem. I'm hopeful that your comment problems are over since you were able to leave a comment on my blog.
    Thanks for visiting and I'll be back.

  8. I'm back folks, or at least I hope I am. sounds pretty skeptical don't it. Well I've been pulling my hair out but thanks to some great friends like Paula over at The Fraker Farm and the help of a neighbor, I think we've got er.. Thanks for all the wonderful comments and patience. Love all you guys..Susie

  9. Hi Susie! So glad to hear that you are up and running again! It was so nice to see your comment on my blog today! It is so frustrating when things don't work right. It is really nice that everyone tries to help when there is a blogger problem. I know when I couldn't comment, several people wrote with ideas that helped me too. It sure was a pretty day today. I am loving this autumn weather and it is so nice to be able sit outside on the porch with Barkley again in the afternoon and wave as the school bus jangles by! I hope you have a good nights rest! Delisa :)

  10. If only the shadows of hatred could truly be set free...that's faith...that's what I live for...Beautiful Spirit Susie!
