PRAYER: Father, Help Me To Look Up To You





Have Mercy, Dear Father
And 
Forgive Me
For All The Times
I Have Raised My Self
Above
My Creator
My Healer
My Helper
My Provider
My Defender
My Protector
My Perfector
My Savior
My Sealer
My Friend To The End
My Lord
And 
My God!

Help Me, Father
To Look Away From Self
And 
Look Up To You
To Step Outside Of Self
And
Step Up To Glory In You
To Give Up Self
And 
Give In To You
To Walk Holy
And 
To Live Wholly For You
In Whom My Hope Rests!

I Pray, Lord
For The Indwelling
The Chiding
And 
The Direction 
Of The Blessed Holy Spirit!

I Also Pray, Lord
That In The Day
That I Must Need Be Chastised
That You, In Mercy
Will Help Me To Accept Graciously
The Reproof 
As A Blessed Child
Of A Loving And Holy Father!

I Also Beseech You, Dear Father
To Help Me
- No Matter The Earthly Reward -
Not To Grieve The Holy Spirit Away!

I Love You, Lord
And 
I Thank You For The Many Blessings
And 
For Hearing 
And 
Answering Prayers
Even With The Unwanted 
Yet Often Necessary
Fatherly "NO!"
In Jesus' Holy Name 
I Come
I Stand
And 
Plead!
AMEN.
