.When we open the door coming home
Let's thank God that we have a place to call home
and pray for for those who have none or are losing theirs
and vow to help the homeless and ask God to show us how
When we go to a job we know will be hard
Let's thank God that we have a way to earn a living
and pray for those who have no job or are losing theirs
and vow to offer help any way we can even if it's just lending a hand
When we spend time with family and friends
Let's thank God for the true blessings they are
and pray for the lonely or those who feel unloved
and vow to reach out and spend time really listening
When we delight in receiving Jesus at Mass
Let's thank God for the true faith imparted to us
and pray for those who are missing out on this grace
and vow to share that faith and invite someone to Mass
When we awake each morning and welcome the day
Let's thank God for our lives and the time he gives us
and pray for those who will die today and souls in purgatory
and vow to make the most of each day for His purpose
When? When can these needs be fulfilled? When?
When will human suffering end? When?
When we are our brothers keeper and live as true
children of the same Father can we live more in His peace.
I pray I will see the next opportunity WHEN I can thank, pray and serve
Will you ask WHEN with me?
