inSpire 2020 Songwriting Contest – Dear Lord, I Need You, by Mae Nowlin, White Fox, Saskatchewan
This is a song the Lord gave me in 1998, when Griz was deathly ill, he was so weak he had to use both hands to lift his fork. It was getting really bad, and one evening we prayed for the Lord to either heal him or take him. It was the hardest thing I had ever done, but we asked His will to be done. I helped Griz into bed, then went into the living room, turned on some instrumental music and just sat there. I picked up a pen and a piece of paper, I felt I had to write something, but nothing came. I prayed,”Lord, if You want me to write something, You have to tell me what to write,” I whispered, “Dear Lord, I Need You.” The words to this song just seemed to flow from the pen. In 15 to 20 minutes it was done. I never changed a thing about it. In the morning Griz got up by himself, and told me, “I felt the Lord’s healing last night.” He continued to get stronger as the days passed.
