Burdens Lifted


Burdens Lifted
By Doreen Margaret Higgs

I woke up feeling very low,
I had burdens hard to bare,
The sky looked grey and cloudy,
as I brushed away a tear.
But soon my spirits lifted,
there was brightness in my day,
for though I did not know it,
someone had knelt to pray.

As they told the Lord about me,
and in earnest said a prayer,
my spirits they were lifted,
God took away my care.
For when we pray for others,
even those who are far away,
our prayers are heard and answered,
and it brightens up their day.


Many times in my life I have suddenly felt uplifted for no apparent reason then learnt later that at that time someone was praying for me. One of the most important things we can do for others is to pray for them.
