One day at a time sweet Jesus....
One day at a time, sweet Jesus
That's all I'm asking of You
Just give me the strength to do every day
What I have to do....
By Marijohn Wilkin & Kris Kristofferson 1974
While we're self-isolating, the days seem slow & the nights prolonged. But for our essential workers the days are frantic, exhausting & the nights too.
So we pray, Lord Jesus give them the strength to do every day what they have to do.
�€� One prayer, at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) an end to this virus, for health to be restored & livelihoods too
�€� One phone call at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) ... to someone we love — family, neighbours, old friends & new
�€� One grateful word at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) to someone working hard to protect us — NHS staff & food chain people, to name but a few
�€� One thought at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) for someone who's sad, lonely, bereaved, in hospital or in care....it could easily be you
�€� One word of thanks at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) to those who work for our welfare, Royal mail, dustbin collectors & and many more too
�€� One greeting at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) 'How are you?' we can shout, as we walk down the street, the road or the avenue
�€� One grateful prayer at a time Lord Jesus (that's all He's asking of you) for our brothers & sisters in churches & homes through-out the world & the poor
�€� One loving word at a time Lord Jesus, (that's all He's asking of you) remembering our nearest & dearest with a — 'glad you're in my life!' & 'I love you!'
One day at a time, sweet Jesus. That's all I'm asking of You,
Just give me the strength to do every day. What I have to do. Amen
