A Thousand Days of Praise: Day 34  

Posted by Sarah Forbes in



104. for sleep filled nights... though they be few, it keeps me thankful for the ones I do get




We pray for blessings 
We pray for peace
 Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
 We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering 
All the while, You hear each spoken need
 Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things 
 'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
 What if Your healing comes through tears
 What if a thousand sleepless nights 
 Are what it takes to know You’re near
 What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
 We pray for wisdom 
Your voice to hear
 And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near 
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love 
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough 
All the while, You hear each desperate plea 
As long that we have faith to believe 
 'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops 
What if Your healing comes through tears 
What if a thousand sleepless nights 
 Are what it takes to know You’re near 
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise 
 When friends betray us 
When darkness seems to win 
We know that pain reminds this heart 
That this is not, this is not our home 
It's not our home 
 'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops 
What if Your healing comes through tears 
And what if a thousand sleepless nights 
Are what it takes to know You’re near 
What if my greatest disappointments
 Or the aching of this life 
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy 
And what if trials of this life 
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights 
Are Your mercies in disguise.
