MORE AND MORE- A PRAYER
With thanksgiving closer to You
Today more and more with a thankful heart
Closer to You Lord;
Father, draw me with Your loving Spirit
Nearer, closer to Your Son
Messiah, my Holy Shepherd
My “first love” forever;
Oh King of my life
Peace of my inner being from my youth
Your Presence, my refuge,
Creator of all essence of human purpose
A woman’s life and beauty
And a man’s path and strength.
Give encouragement I pray, for all the children in need
The homeless, the orphan and widow who wander alone,
All those who know they are lost in this world;
Savior pluck us all from the fire of justice
Even ones snared by dark spirits of lust
Pornographic appetites and delusions, acts of desperation
And every self-destructive perversion.
Cause me to shine brightly with Heaven’s Light
For my brothers and sisters, the strangers I see on the street as well
Some glimpsed at on the Internet,
And to walk in fearless love with faithful acts
By word of mouth
Even things I’ve written and shared in love
Gentle things, tender and sensitive things.
Lasting treasure, to touch another heart in need with goodness
A mind with thoughts in knots
Those pulled at and toyed with by this world and its evil prince;
Lord of my prayers keep me in step
Led by Your Holy Spirit of power and authority
Sealed by the greatest Name;
Equip all your servants, enable them to see and hear
And to walk in confidence, with constant assurance.
Lord Yeshua, Master of the Universe, Ruler of all creation,
As Your humble disciples, keep us at Your side
Persevering, steadfast in love, enduring
Thankful, faithful to You, to and through the end.
