John 16:24″ Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full."
You said to ask and receive
Lord you have always given before I even made the plea
Though my body was plagued by chronic disease
My spirit never wained though my body was fatigued
The aches and the pain would make me cry
But the words of my savior made me feel I could fly
So armed with your courage I live life head on
How shocked I was when people said I don't belong
It seemed to annoy them that I would work so hard
With my conditions to prosper a dream that seemed so far
You'll never make it they said and they pulled away when I tried
They were sure that I'd fail and their lack of faith made me cry
So Lord now I'm depending on you for my strength alone
I count on your friendship being so far from my home
I put trust that you'll help me where others have failed
to provide for us and the animals and all that entails
so we can use this farm that you gave us to be a light now to others
so we can show them your love, and help our fellow sisters and brothers
Let this farm now be a haven to all that have grown weary
Bring us the weak and the sick, the downcast and those that are leery
that have given up on this world and feel there is no hope at all
so I can introduce them to the Lord and help them hear his call
and our hands will be his tool to show them a love that will not end
while they enjoy the beauty of this farm and the animals they befriend
let them see past the comfy trappings of life that we lack
and see the joy of our spirits as we work to the max
Lord bring unto me the people whom you choose
And I will try my best to be a light unto you
thank you for hearing this prayer that I send now in faith
and I will wait for your answer as I live supported by your grace
