I see the hurting of the world and I wonder where is compassion. Many turn the other way, pretend they don't see. If we can do nothing else, we can say a prayer. By the grace of God go I...


So many people are in pain
I see it every day
Taking the wrong road
They're being lead astray
Hearts bleeding from within
Tears falling to the floor
Screaming to the silent shadows
They can't take it anymore
How can I touch that soul
Lighten the cross they bear
How can I make a difference
Lord, they need someone to care

A cardboard box in the alley
Its somebody's home
How does it feel to lose everything
Your house,  your loved ones gone
I wonder how the coldness feels
When no warm blanket can be found
And the only place to lay your head
Is on a solid frozen ground
How can I touch that soul
Lighten the cross they bare
How can I make a difference
Lord, they need someone to care

There's a mother standing by a coffin
Her son in soldiers blue
Tears falling like the raindrops
She don't know what to do
He fought hard for his country
A war he didn't survive
A purple heart for a hero
But she'd rather have him alive
How can I touch that soul
Lighten the cross they bear
How can I make a difference
Lord, they need someone to care

Linda just by your heart being moved with such compassion for people from every walk of life means so much, and with your prayers you can interceed for each one! and I am a living witness that prayer would make the difference in each life!!! prayer really changes people, prayer changes things!!! God bless you Linda for sharing and may all of your prayers be answered, especially the unspoken ones!!!

WELL WRITTEN WITH PHRASES THAT TELL OF YOUR BURDEN FOR THEM AND I AGREE WITH YOU...THEY NEED SOMEONE TO CARE AND THEY HAVE SOMEONE THAT DOES CARES...HIS NAME IS JESUS...JESUS USES US TO HELP THEM AND WE DO THE BEST THAT WE CAN...WE PRAY FOR THEM AND WE GIVE WHAT WE CAN, WHEN WE CAN, IN WHATEVER WAY WE CAN. WE CANNOT GIVE WHAT WE DO NOT HAVE BUT WE GIVE WHAT WE DO HAVE...JESUS(ACTS 3:1-6). BLESSINGS AND THANKS FOR SHARING. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Caring, perhaps one of the sentiments that man has shed from his skin, getting a little more naked, a little less human.

We need to become more like Jesus, reach out, and stop thinking of our own petty problems when there's so many hurting people out there in our own country! How apathetic have we come?? It's absolutely heartbreaking! Powerful call for change, as only you can do; thank you for bringing us back to earth and making us think! Well done, Linda!
