A Servant's Prayer





 “ A Servant’s Prayer ”


Dear God in heaven,

How I need you today

Be with me every moment

This, oh Lord, I pray


Protect my mind…

From harmful thoughts

Protect my heart…

From others’ fiery darts

Protect my body…

From harm unseen

Fill my spirit…

With your everlasting peace


Bridle my tongue

That I might not sin

Humble me, Lord

Again and again

Open my eyes

To other’s needs

Occupy  my hands

With fruitful deeds


In all that I say

In all that I do

It is my most fervent prayer

That in me, they see you
