The Footprints Prayer One night I had a dream…

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord,

And Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.

               For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;

One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my life flashed before us,

I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many times along the path of my life,

There was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and

Saddest times in my life this really bothered me, and

I questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once

I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way;

But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,

There is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why in times

When I needed you the most, you should leave me.

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child.

I love you, and I would never, never leave you

During your times of trial and suffering.

When you saw only one set of footprints,

It was then that I carried you.
