Pullin’ and Prayin’






Pullin’ and Prayin’

Psalm 107:17-22

I’m pullin’ and prayin’
For you to come through.
Your health failed again,
But your job you must go to.

You’re gaunt and frail.
You were once muscular strong.
Now your face is drawn.
Your vigor all gone.

But God will answer.
I’m sure of this now.
His healing energy.
His healing power.

You’re looking better
As time goes on.
Strength returning –
A phenomenon

Laughter returns
Like the good old days.
Still pullin’ and prayin’
That this all will stay.

— Charles B. Mayes

When you have a relative that has been very ill, and you want them so badly to get well, and you pray for them, and God answers — it is so wonderful!  You then continue to pray that they will stay in good health.
