Let Me Be A Sponge

In memory of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre – praying for hope and healing for their families, friends and community.


Let Me Be A Sponge
by Carl Josehart

Dear God
Let me be a sponge
and soak up all their sorrow
Help me ease their pain
and give them reason to believe in tomorrow

Dear God
Let me be a sponge
that will wash away their tears
give them hope
and help alleviate their fears

Dear God
Let me be a sponge
so I can wring out all their misery
wipe them clean
and let them face their lives with renewed energy

Dear God
Let me be a sponge
