LORD PROP US UP
Every time I am ask to pray, I think of the old deacon who always prayed,"Lord prop us up on our leanin'side"
After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently, He answered , "Well sir, you see, it's like this.... I got an old barn out back, it's been there a long time. It's withstood a lot of weather, it's gone through alot of storms and it's stood for many of years. It's still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side abit. So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on it's leaning side so it wouldn't fall, Then I got to thinking 'bout that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around a long time, I've stood alot of life's storms. I've withstood alot bad weather in my life, I've withstood alot of hard times and I'm still standing too. I find myself leaning to one side from time to time. I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side,'cause I figure alot of us get to leaning, at times"
Sometime we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, and alot of things that we shouldn't, so we need to pray,"Lord, prop us up on our leaning side," So we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the LORD!!!!!
