Blessed by Jesus

Good health most take for granted,
A gift of God from birth,
And few of us are thankful
Daily for its true worth.

Then suddenly or slowly
We find ourselves quite ill,
And wonder what has happened,
Believing in God still.

But those of us called Christians,
Whose faith in God is sure,
Pray daily for Godís guidance,
Hoping life will endure.

Our blessings are of all sorts,
Not least are Christian friends
Whose prayers for us weíre thankful.
Good wishes many send.

For cards and calls and visits
And support through each trial,
We know occurring daily,
Should help to make us smile.

But most of all the prayers
For healing by our Lord,
Will bring real comfort every day,
Just as did Jesusí words.

Give thanks to God for healing,
Thanks for each and every prayer.
How blessed we are together,
That we the same Lord share.
