Somebody Prayed For You

                                                   Somebody prayed for you today
                                                   when your feet ached and your back grew sore
                                                   and your heavy burdens weighed you down
                                                   and you cried aloud, "please God no more"
                                                   Somebody prayed for you today
                                                   when you were sad and you felt alone
                                                   and you vainly reached for the yesterdays
                                                   and the simple joys that you had known

                                                   Somebody prayed for you today
                                                   when nothing seemed to turn out right
                                                   and you longed for a friendly voice and smile
                                                   with never a living soul in sight
                                                   But somebody prayed for you today
                                                   within whose heart you'll always be
                                                   and the dear Lord listened and blessed us both
                                                   For the one who prayed was me

I want to give you all an update on my niece. She got to come home today. They can't do anymore surgeries for three months until her body heals some from her ordeal and other surgeries. She has several more to go and they won't know if she will ever walk again for about two years. They will be doing therapy on her while she's home. She will have round the clock care, as she will be in a hospital bed. Her family has their hands full and still need prayers.. They are overwhelmed with so much caring, love and support. I know with God's help she will overcome this tragedy and they will make it.. Thank you all for your wonderful prayers and caring.. Please continue to pray.. May God Bless Each One.. Susie


  1. We will continue to keep her and the family in our prayers. Thank you for updating us.

  2. I will continue to pray for her. Good news that she got to go home. I hope that her healing goes quickly. I know she still has much to overcome and hope she can regain her strength with the therapy.

    Lovely poem. Thank you for sharing it, Susie.

  3. What a beautiful poem. I hope you don't mind if I copy it for my daughter Christi.
    I am so very sorry to read about your niece. I am behind and will catch up while I am here.
    Of course I will add her to my prayers and all of you too for the strength to help her through this.
    Thank you for your prayers for Christi. I strongly believe in the power of our prayers. They have worked miracles for us as I know they will for your niece.
    Wanted to let you know I am having a giveaway so hope you can enter.

  4. Very nice poem. Glad to hear that your niece gets to go home for a while.

  5. Beautiful poem! Thank you for the up date on your neiece will continue to pray Gods perfect peace and healing touch

  6. Hi Susie, oh how wonderful to hear that Amber was able to go home! I know it isn't the homecoming everyone would have wished and she still has so far to go and needs so much care, but I know her heart will rest better at home and her healing will pick up the pace. Have a lovely day ahead! Delisa :)

  7. Hi Susie, I forgot to tell you how beautiful the poem is. It brought tears to my eyes, especially the part about the "sore back". When you hurt all the time it can make you feel a little isolated and to know that some one is praying for you and caring about you enough to talk to our heavenly Father is so comforting and hope-inspiring. I am going to make a copy of this poem and put it in my Bible. Thank you so much! Delisa :)

  8. I've never stopped to think that someone might be praying for me -- very comforting!

    I'll continue to pray for your neice.

  9. Thank you all for your prayers. It has made a world of difference.. God answers them everyday..lil red hen, I'm with you, I never stop and think that someone may be praying for me. I know now that they were because ther's so many prayers that have been answered and so many blessings. We're blest if we can get out of the bed each morning.. Thanks again for your prayers and wonderful comments..

  10. What a powerful thing prayer is. It reaches beyond our physical boundaries. I pray that those caring for your niece would be strengthen and that she makes a full recovery.

  11. Sometimes it feels like somebody must be praying. I feel it and right one I'm praying for your niece

  12. Thank you so much Wanda and Nikki,, appreciate your prayers so much and comments..

  13. Hi, Susie!

    I like that prayer- there is another pray that I like- entitled "Someone Prayed you Through"
    by all means , I will pray for your niece! Prayer is maraculous! May she be blessed with healing and recovery!!

    Comfort, peace and strength unto you and the family!!

  14. That poem is beautiful!!
    Now with you niece..when the weather is fine, get her outside to breath the fresh air, it holds 19-21% O2 and that feeds every cell in the body, it helps with healing (I hope she is not a smoker, because that hinders healing.) Make sure she drinks 6 glasses of water a day. It flushes the kidneys and detoxes the liver...Keep these two healthy and she will florish. Lastly, get her to take two magnesium tablets every night, they are the miracle mineral. Do a research on the net... 'Benefits of Magnesium' and read up on it yourself. In the old days people put a teaspoon of epsom salts in water daily and drank it. Magnesium is epsom salts. There are live foods and dead foods.. Eat fresh mostly, or if not then frozen, but keep away from too much processed foods or tin foods..There is very little goodness in them. What she would benefit from is fresh fruit and vegetables juiced!! God bless you all. xx

  15. Susie,
    Thank you for that poem. It is good to know that someone is praying for me, sweet friend. We could all use prayers in life. God bless your niece.
