Remove My Thorns

Don't let me be a thorn...
pricking those around me,
let my bushes be full of bloom,
emitting and magnifying colorful radiances,
touching those who bear burdens and heartaches.

Enhance my soul and mind to focus...
don't allow my demands to weaken my pleas.
Sanction me to assist without recognition or reward,
allow me not to weary in my well doing,
knowing faith in You brings many miracles.

Help me to be loving and candid to everyone,
don't allow the thorns to embed and harden my soul.
Strengthen my being to seek those in hardship,
before they strangle by their own fate.
Lead me to draw them out of the darkness to see Your light.

Grant me the skill to draw out my soul...
to the needy, reach out to the afflicted, orphans,
and those who've been abused in life...
left to feel unloved and abused for living,
robbing them of a right to existence.

God, don't let me be a thorn...
pricking those around me,
allow my vine to sustain and grow,
giving hugs, friendship, and attention...
permit my creeping plant to be healthy and alert.

Keep my plant nourished and watered...
don't allow it to become as hay in the fields.
Prevent me not to overlook Your graciousness,
thanking You before I commence to ask.
God, don't let me be a thorn...
but a blossom full of life to aid others.

Psalm 84:11; Isaiah 58:10; Matthew 5:7

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
