A SHORT NOTE BY JIM SHORT (former Association Director of Missions)

Psalm 13:17—Habakkuk 1:2

Time and time again in the lives of men,

The cry has often been, Lord, how long?

Will we have sickness, drought and sin?

It is here again, and is going on and on.


Many times to get attention of mankind,

You sent floods and plagues and sickness

Man turned to listen and for your fill to find,

So, life returned to success and wellness.


So once again, our cry is Lord, how long?

This virus has infected people far and wide.

It has taken so many lives and they are gone.

We pray You will turn this terrible tide.


Help us, Lord, to learn in this, Your will,

To see the message You teach in Your Word.

May our minds, hearts and soul be still,

And change so as to prove that we heard.


Forgive us for our failure to love one another

As Your word calls on all to hear and heed,

Let us live so we see all as sisters and brothers,

Help us all to yield and let You lead.
