10-20-14 The Lord’s Prayer 05a: Deliver Us

temptation of st anthony

O Father, save us from temptation’s snare,

The kind that lead us far away from You.

If You must test us, help us stay aware

Your trials help to keep us wise and true.

The Devil may attempt to feed us doubt;

He may tempt to distrust the Holy Ghost.

O God, though trouble circles us about,

Deliver us from evil’s hoary boast.

Emancipate our minds from wicked thoughts

And save our souls from Satan’s hateful ways;

Your Son and our Redeemer Jesus taught

That we should call on You, God, when we pray.

So lead us not into temptation’s hold.

Deliver us from evil, make us bold.

~~~~~~~~~~~

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil

Matthew 6:13 KJV

7-12-14 My Friend

friends

Though troubled times may come to try your soul,

Or enemies with hatred apprehend;

If grief comes down and seems to take control,

You know that I will always be your friend.

The winds of change sometimes are harsh and cold,

With bitter nights when loneliness descend;

When strife and pain surround to scream and scold,

Just think of me and I’ll be there, my friend.

Adversity comes quick and then moves slow

And never seems to leave or show an end;

It’s times like these you know just where to go,

I’m here for you my brother and my friend.

The love we share endures through trial or trends;

There’s nothing like the bond between two friends.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

A friend loves at all times,

and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 17:17
