I pray in Jesus' Name
Give my loved one a holy hug today
Wrap Your arms of love 'round
In Your loving embrace this day
Squeeze them, oh, so tight
So they find Your love beaming bright
Feeling Your presence, oh, so near
The loving touch of the Father's Hands
Sending holy hugs from heaven's stands
To bring sunshine and hope
To dear ones I love and understand
Ministering Your touch of love as they cope
To meet all their needs today.
At our hearts' door
To pull us closer
To Jesus Whom we adore
So, draw us tenderly to Thee, O' Lord!
Isaiah 40:11...He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd. He shall gather the lambs with His arms and carry them in His Bosom.
Isaiah 46:2......I will carry you.
Isaiah 41:10, 13...Thy right hand hath holden me up...Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe...For the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee with the right hand of righteousness.
Psalm 73:23-26, 28...Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by thy right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? And there is none upon earth I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever. But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.
Psalm 71:5,9,14,18...For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth. But I will hope continually and will yet praise thee more and more. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
