When It Won't Stop!
When the wind won't stop
Blowing and swirling
Leaving destruction in its path
When the rivers won't stop rising
Forcing people to make decisions
That none are ever prepared to face
When people won't stop fighting
When slippery jobs won't stay still
When the price of food and gasoline won't stop rising
And the lamp of courage is almost extinguished
Because the world as we know it is spinning out of control!
Good and gracious God,
Have mercy upon us
For the challenges that lie ahead.
