Come, Lord Jesus

Long ago, Israel wanted you to come, to fight against their enemies and make their nation rule.

Since you returned to Heaven, all Christians have wanted you to come, to destroy what is evil and establish a home where there is eternal beauty; no sorrow; no death.

But today, Lord Jesus, I ask you to come to one person.

Come to the lady who lost her husband this year, and blanket her with your comfort.

To the man who is depressed, surprise him in the morning with a spark of promise.

Touch the child who is homeless, and bring someone who is willing to help.

Whisper to the woman who is lonely, and show her that you will walk by her side.

For him who has lost his job, give him the energy to try again.

To her whose family is divided, waken her with possibilities she could never have imagined.

To him whose health is failing, give your strength for breathing and walking through the pain.

For the woman who can’t pay her bills, help her to have enough.

For the man who believes nothing real is good, open his eyes to a sight of wonder.

To the child who’s disabled, bring a sense of being necessary.

Today, Lord Jesus, come and bring us hope.

Revelation 22: 20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
