Today I am ready to speak for my King
Let me bring the message You want me to bring
May Your Spirit help me and guide every word
Let my voice be muted; so Yours can be heard

Don't let my inadequacies stand in Your way
I offer myself; I'm Your servant, today
All that I can give I will offer You, Lord
Please let me be faithful to Your Holy Word

My ears are now ready to hear what You say
My hands are now ready to serve You, today
My mouth sings Your praises; Your music is mine
I'll walk in Your way and my steps will be Thine

Today I am ready to live for my King
Let all that I do be a song that I sing
Let all of my actions bring glory to You
Let me honor Your Mercy in all that I do

Help me to love others, for Your Holy sake
Tear down evíry barrier; each stronghold please break
Let me see all people through Your loving eyes;
Let my heart respond and help comfort their cries

Let them look beyond me and see only You
Let old things be banished; make each person new.
Let me be Your vessel; I heed Your great call
Lord, let me be nothing; that You may be all.

This has so many wonderful thoughts. I'm going to have to share this with my pastor. Excellent!

Very nice poem. I's easily read and easily understood. A good prayer for a pastor to pray.
