a prayer from a forever learning heart

Father give me patience,
Father give me peace,
show me how to love,
how to be complete.

I’ve been carried through the storms
& cradled across deserts.
Pick me up once more,
Lord hold me in your presence.

Embrace me with your strength,
allow me to taste your grace,
fill me with your energy,
train me to run your race.

Lord though I’ve wandered and strayed,
you my perfect Father, never change.
Remind me of that truth,
when I shield my heart from you,
& pull me home from my childish state.

Teach me to walk on faith alone,
to keep my eyes fixed on your throne.
Teach me how to glorify you
in every breath I breathe
& every word I speak.

Help me to act selflessly, love relentlessly,
& cease to wander from you.

Teach me to live on faith,
to live radically,
to live gratefully
& forever seek your face.

Father give me patience,
Father give me peace,
show me how to love,
how to be complete.
