~ Prayer for a Stranger ~

I passed him along the street,
A stranger, tired and worn,
He barely moved his feet
And his gaze was so forlorn.

I was in such a hurry,
I went quickly along my way…
But I sensed in him a need
So I began to pray…

Lord, someone you love is falling,
Their hope is fading fast,
They're struggling just to function
And their spirit is downcast.

Life's seemed to pass them by, Lord,
And left a bitter taste,
I pray you'd turn the tide, Lord,
Before it's much too late.

I know your grace digs deeper,
Than any thing we've done
And plants a seed of mercy
To give life to everyone…

So I'm praying for this stranger
I may never pass again,
I don't even know his name Lord,
But I know you cherish him…

I pray this prayer's a catalyst
Sending power from on high,
To change the heart of this poor soul,
The man I just passed by…
