Psalm of God’s Help

Oh Lord God, be my help and my shield.
Hasten to deliver me from evil.
Be not far from me--my strength and my help.
Guide and help me through all trials of unbelief.

In thy great compassion oh Lord,
help me to help others.
Provide thy grace oh great Father God,
and allow me to help lead them to salvation.

Thou are my help and my deliverer.
Let me not fall into temptation.
Help me to stand righteous throughout the daily trials of compromise.

Guide me with thy arm around me and hold me upright and firm
to overcome with thy help the seven deadly sins of:
Pride—Envy—Anger—Avarice—Sadness—Gluttony
and Lust

Help me Father to develop the Christ within me
and with faith and grace perform throughout my life
the seven corporal works of mercy from the words of
my Jesus.

To feed the hungry
To give drink to the thirsty
To welcome the stranger
To clothe the naked
To visit the sick
To visit the prisoner
To bury the dead

And, also to perform the seven spiritual works of mercy as well my Father

To teach the ignorant
To council the needy
To chastise the sinful
To comfort the sorrowful
To forgive the enemies
To suffer tribulation
To pray for all fervently

And grant me oh great God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
the seven virtues which are: faith, hope, charity, fortitude, temperance,
justice, and prudence that I may be worthy of this life, of thy company, and
deserving of thy help, trust, pride, and salvation.

Father God help me to discern your will and with my
free will have us walk together in faith, righteousness, and eternity.

A wonderful, heartfelt prayer. If you're going to use "thees and thous," keep usage in mind: thou art and thine arm in particular.

I loved your lists beginning with "to..." toward the end--would be worthwhile to have them printed up as a daily reminder. Very nice.

I see this as a beautiful prayer. Lovely.
