James 5:13 (NASB)

“Is anyone among you suffering?  Then he must pray.  Is anyone cheerful?  He is to sing praises.”

Are you suffering today?

May you cry out to God and pray.

~

Are you full of joy and cheer?

Let God your praises hear.

~

So often life is difficult.

We shrug off others’ pain and hurt.

~

Then it comes to be our turn

And that is when a lesson is learned.

~

Are you suffering today?

O, please bow your knees and pray.

~

Or are you full of joy and cheer?

Then praise the One who is always near.

~

Your heart will be so glad you did.

When you find shelter as your Heavenly Father’s kid.

~

For as His kids, we are blessed with grace.

And Someone to rely on, no matter life’s pace.

~

So rain or drought,

We are never without

~

The love of our true Father.

So, may we too love one another.

~

May we remember when another is in pain,

That on this earth, we will all have times of suffering.

~

Hold your loved one close, and remind them to pray.

As the tears fall down, God will comfort them in their pain.

~

And when comes joy and cheerfulness,

Remember, too God’s constant nearness.

~

Give Him praise for the source of your cheer.

Remember that God is the reason that you are here.

~

So, be it up, or be it down,

In God’s presence may we always be found!
