Praying For Felisol's Cousin


1. Praise the Lord, and leave to-morrow

In thy loving Father’s hands;

Burden not thyself with sorrow,

For secure the promise stands.

He is faithful! :

Leave thy troubles in His hands.


2. Trust to-day, and leave to-morrow,

Each day has enough of care;

Therefore, whatso’er thy burden,

God will give thee strength to bear.

He is faithful! :

Cast on Him thine every care.


3. Pray to-day, and let to-morrow,

Bring with it whate’er it may;

Hear thy loving Father promise

Strength according to thy day.

He is faithful!

Trust Him therefore, come what may.


4. Watch to-day, and leave to-morrow,

For to-morrow may not come;

Ever to-day thy loving Saviour

May appear to take thee home.

He is faithful!

Look for Him, the coming One.


5. Work to-day, and leave to-morrow;

All around there’s urgent need;

All around there’s sin and sorrow;

Broadcast, daily sow thy seed.

God is faithful!

He shall bless thy work indeed.


6. This by trusting, watching, praying,

Each day, as our time rolls on,

We shall find the promised blessing,

Daily strength till Jesus come.

He is faithful!

He will come to take us home.



Pray today for Felisol's cousin, Bjorn.
His father who is a Christian is on his dying bed and his son is not saved.
Felisol's words;
"I talked with my cousin just this morning. Told him I was praying for him.
Don't do that, I ll get by on my own, he said.
Well, I said with a laugh, all the prayers that have been sent for you just can't be retrieved. He just mumbled, but it is all right, he knows I will continue to pray for him as long as I live, the same will his sister and Mom. My uncle lies in a coma, getting weaker every day. I hope Jesus will not prolong his sufferings, but the immortal soul of my cousin is also at a stake. He takes the nightshifts waking over his beloved father. I have lent him my i Pod with lots and lots of Norwegian and English spiritual songs on it, also ordinary pop and classic as well. . He told me that the music helped him through the night. I pray that God will talk to him through the old, familiar redemption songs. Well, I am grateful for your prayers, as you can understand from the situation here.

Honestly I think God had to put me aside to do some unpaid work for him.
There has not been a day that I have not had use of my education or the spare hours. I have no time at all to get bored, hardly time to watch TV or read a book.
As for money God has been a solid provider till this day. I cannot worry about tomorrow."
