A Thought Collage (A Prayer)
In these times of waiting
Times that do my patience test.
May I know that in due time they too will pass
And that I ought to use them to fulfill Your best.
Help me in this time, to keep my dreams alive
To keep them fresh and new…
To remember that the winter brings the spring
And the rain a sky clear and blue.
Each new day brings me closer to the finish
Draws me a little closer to the end.
Am I ready – ready to meet what lies ahead?
May my firm reliance be on You Jesus, my greatest Friend.
Let Your praises rise continually from my heart.
Not just for Your gifts of good things
But for Your glory, honor and majesty
For the continual mercy Your sacrifice on the Cross to my life brings.
Let my mind not wander away from You.
May it dwell not on things here on earth
But may my dreams and desires and delights be in You alone
And may a Christ centered vision in me be birthed!
Help me Lord to simply be obedient
And in all my obeying not to forget Your love.
A love that calls me Your friend, Your daughter
Love that secures victory here on earth and a final home in Heaven above
In You Lord let me place my trust and my faith
For it is in You alone that I find all that is true.
Let my strength and my song be in You, Jesus
May my life be spent in whole-hearted pursuit of You.
May I ever remember that You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You
And that if I will seek it is You that I shall find
And that if I will knock, the door You shall open
And Your peace which passes all understanding will guard my heart and my mind.
Abiding in You Jesus I have no fear!
Through life’s trials and temptations I need not simply cope
For I will never be forsaken and never be ashamed
When in You and Your Word I place my hope!
