Prayer for Genealogists

Prayer For Genealogists

“Lord, help me dig into the past, 
And sift the sands of time, 
That I might find the roots that made 
This family tree mine. 

Lord, help me trace the ancient roads, 
On which my fathers trod, 
And led them through so many lands, 
To find our present sod. 

Lord, help me find an ancient book, 
Or dusty manuscript, 
That's safely hidden now away, 
In some forgotten crypt, 

Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts 
My soul, when I can't find 
The missing link between some name 
That ends the same as mine.”

  1. Hello Sarah,

    We don't know each other, we don't even live in the same County, (I live in Nova Scotia, Canada). We are miles away in age too! I am 63. But...Genealogy and spreading positive posts, and photos have me here saying thank you.

    Also, genealogy is almost an obsession with me so I have a double dose of two things that brighten my spirits. So, thank you Sarah.
