A prayer for deliverance
"Abba Father" by Brenda Henderson
FATHER I stretch my hand to THEE
I don't know what else to do

FATHER if you withdraw YOUR HAND from me I know I won't make it through

FATHER I don't know what's wrong I feel like I can't make it
it's tight

FATHER I'm trying to hold onto my peace but I'm losing the will to fight

FATHER the weight is so heavy
at times I feel driven down to the dust

But I pray every day though I can't see my way and it's in YOU that I've placed my trust

FATHER come to my aid rescue and save
Deliver me from hurt harm and strife

FATHER by Faith I look up to THEE for it's YOU who has given me LIFE

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe." (Prov 18:10) NKJV
