Hymn and Scripture Challenge #6 - Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

Hello, my friends! I am finally here with my Challenge page! Can you believe I was late with this one? It was the first time ever! I'm not going to get into all the reasons why it's late...I'm just happy to be posting it!
Okay, you know I have to say it, don't you? This is one of my favorite hymns! lol For my choice of Scripture verse I pulled from the third verse of the song...
"blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, hear, O hear us when we pray; 
blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, hear, O hear us when we pray."
What a wonderful assurance we have that God hears our prayers...not only does He hear them but He answers them...according to His will!  I love to pray, and I pray for all of you that pop in and visit me! Max Lucado says..."Prayer pushes us through life's slumps, propels us over the humps, and pulls us out of the dumps. Prayer is the oomph we need to get the answers we seek." :o)
I had fun coloring this sweet image of the praying girl. It's actually a Christmas stamp, so it was a little tricky to ink it up without getting any of the background! It's another image that reminds me of my girls when they were little...saying their bedtime prayers! I'm off to say mine now! :o)

Here's a closeup of the Scripture verse:

He always sang in a quartet and they've always been my favorite! :o)

Lovely Nancy! Did you teach handwriting in a school somewhere or did they just use yours as the example on those posters they put up in the schoolrooms? LOL I've never seen such precise cursive. :-)
I know I'm sure thankful that you pray for me. I'm praying or you too friend. :-) Have a fabulous weekend!

Hi, Nancy! I'm glad to see you again :-)

Sorry, I made a mistake in my previous comment, I had to delete it.

Thanks for your kind comment in my blog. You know, I think that God "always" answers our prayers. Sometimes He tells us: "yes", sometimes He tells us: "no", and sometimes He says: "wait". But He always answers.

Your pieces is as always so beautiful! Thanks for sharing it with us, dear. I hope you have a very pleasant Holy Week. God blees you! xoxo
