Prayer: Lord, Help Me Not To Make Shipwreck!

Lord, help me not to make shipwreck
Upon the sandy shoals
Of name or rank or talent
Let me upon Christ take hold!

Help me to set aside my self, Lord
Help me, Lord, to lift You up
Give me the strength to give my back to
The accolades of men from the bitter cup!

I beseech You, Lord, for the blessings
That keep my sight raised high
To the Temple of The Eternal
To my mansion in the sky!

Until the Day of Awarding
When Saints have been glorified
Let me not make shipwreck of my faith, Lord
By believing Old Satan's lies!
