Trading Places

My sister, Jeannie, and her husband, Gene Martin, are blessing our sweet, 90 year-young widowed Mother, Lillian Chapman, with a room in their home. Jeannie is one of the people the scriptures calls “greatest among you” because she is such a servant, especially in her role as a caring daughter. Then the day came when Jeannie heard the dreaded cry from Mom’s room. She had fallen, broke four ribs and punctured her lung.

The trip to the ER was followed by a five day stay in a hospital and eventually an extended stay in a rehab facility. While in the hospital my sister had to feed Mom because of the lack of movement she faced due to the pain. It was a temporary necessity but as Jeannie so lovingly put the spoon to our Mother’s lips I thought of all the times our Mother had fed us. The roles, though only for a short time, had reversed.

There are many others whose situations are not temporary. In the long term they, as the child, have become the parent.  “Trading Places” was written to recognize this role reversal and we pray that God will bless those who are serving their mother or their father in such a way.

“Prayer of the Sick” (Make Me a Miracle)

In advance of Annie’s scheduled surgery to address a suspicious and worrisome cyst that the doctor said was “inadvertently” (though we believe, divinely) discovered on her kidney, this song was written as a prayer for her to sing. We offer it here at our website to those who may also be facing a troubling health issue.

“Prayer of the Sick” (Make Me a Miracle)

Make me a miracle
Let others see how wonderful You are
How wonderful You are
May it be that You alone
Get the glory O blessed One
This is the prayer of my heart

Lord I come to You body broken
Trusting You and hoping
For Your touch I need so much
You are able

If it be Your will that I bear this pain
Father still I will proclaim
How wonderful, how wonderful You are
But if You have work yet for me to do
On this earth I lean on You
To hear the prayer of my heart

Lord I come to You body broken
Trusting You and hoping
For Your touch I need so much
You are able

Make me a miracle
Let others see how wonderful You are
How wonderful You are
May it be that You alone
Get the glory oh blessed One
This is the prayer of my heart
