Dear merciful Lord,
In silence and prayer I feel your presence. Yet back in the world I forget.
Why do I lose sight of you? I know you, I trust you, But I get distracted and fail.
I let my flesh react, Without thinking or care, Ignoring or hurting others Even though I don’t want to.
Won’t you change me, Oh Lord? I can’t do it on my own.
Remove the obstacles in my heart That cover your grace.
When I arise from prayer Let me not forget your love, And may my prayer continue.
When I engage with people May your mercy go forth, As I was saved by your mercy.
Let me stand firm on principles On the rock that is Christ Whose Spirit gives me life.
Help me be humble, my Lord. May your hand never leave me. Let my life glorify Christ.
In Jesus name, Amen.
