1 - Teach us to value each and every day, LORD, so that we will
be wise enough to make the most of them.
2 - Itís time for a change, LORD. Hasnít this gone on long
enough? For pityís sake, itís time to give us a break.

poor at our own peril, for you bear a deep concern for them, and
judge harshly those who do not. Help us to grow in this area,
for we are not each living on our own little island, out to

invest everything in Godís realm.
The Lord is steadfast and true,
and will bless this journey of faith.
