The Inspirational Poem in My Prayer For Today


My Prayer For Today

You may have noticed that there is another name next to mine on the front of My Prayer For Today. Eunice Farnsworth is my Nan, who passed away a few years ago. She was a very special lady whom I treasured closely. Her faith was always important to her, and she always reminded us how important prayer was.

Nan wrote this poem called 'Prayer' the day her husband of 64 years went to hospital. Pa had been sick for a few years, and Nan knew God was calling him home. The poem was Nan's prayer acknowledging that she knew God was there in her weakness and how He heard her prayers. She prayed for strength to help her through that day.

Both my Nan and Pa have passed over the last few years, and this poem has become something that my family treasures. It's a beautiful reminder of the power of prayer and the strength it can bring in times of need.

What Makes Nan's Prayer So Special?

Nan's prayer is not just any ordinary prayer. It's a heartfelt expression of her faith and a testament to her unwavering belief in the power of prayer. It's a reminder that even in our weakest moments, God is there, listening to our prayers and providing us with the strength we need to get through each day.
But what makes Nan's prayer truly special is the love and devotion behind it. It's a prayer written by a wife who knew that her husband's time on earth was coming to an end. It's a prayer filled with hope, gratitude, and a deep sense of trust in God's plan.

A Tribute to Nan and Pa

As I read Nan's prayer, I can't help but feel a sense of gratitude for the love and faith that she and Pa shared. They were a couple who stood by each other through thick and thin, and their love for God and each other was unwavering.
Nan's prayer serves as a beautiful tribute to their love and the legacy they left behind. It's a reminder to cherish our loved ones and to hold onto the memories and lessons they've imparted on us.

Keeping Nan's Prayer Alive

Although Nan and Pa may no longer be with us, their spirit lives on through Nan's prayer as a source of comfort and strength.
Whenever we face challenges or need guidance, we turn to Nan's prayer. It reminds us of the power of prayer and the importance of having faith in God's plan.
So, the next time you find yourself in need of strength or guidance, take a moment to say a prayer. It doesn't have to be fancy or elaborate. Just speak from your heart, like Nan did, and trust that God is listening.
Remember, prayers have the power to heal, to comfort, and to bring us closer to God.
