PRAYER ... For A Quiet And Gentle Spirit!





Father,
I Give To You My Praise
And
My Worship!
Please Help Me Daily To Surrender Unto You
My Will!
Help Me Ever To Call Sin
By Its Rightful Name
And
I Beseech You
To Kill Any Desire Within Me To Want
With That Wicked Satan To Chill!

Father,
I Am A Sinner By Nature!
Help Me Not To Nurture
Sinful Ways!
Please Help Me To Stand Firm
In Your Faith And Belief
Though I
By Friends And Family
May Suffer
Untold Grief!

Father,
I Desire To Walk The Way Holy!
I Desire To Walk The Path Straight
And I Desire 
With All That's In The Humble Believer's Heart
To Enter The Gate To The Heavenly City
Never To Suffer
Satan's Everlastingly Just Fate!

Father,
Man Looks At My Outward Appearance
But You
The All Seeing
All Knowing
Ever Present
Almighty God
Sees Plainly My Longing-To-See-Christ Heart!

Oh, Lord
Cultivate In This Willing Soul
A Character
Which Is Patterned After
Jesus Christ's Faithful
Loving
And
Holy Heart!

Father,
I Have No Desire
For Riches
Neither For Power
Never For Fame!
The Desire Of My Heart
Is For A Quiet
And
Gentle Spirit
Against Which
No Law
In Any Kingdom Of This Dying Earth
May Make A Valid Claim!

Give Unto Me, Dear Father
What I Need For My Daily Bread!
Help Me Never To Yield Up
A Holy Spirit-Taught Conscience
Just To Acquire That Which
A Heaven-bound Soul
Can't Honestly Use
And Should
By Living Faith
Refuse!

I Plead,  Lord
For Faith For The Day
Courage For The Way
Strength
And
Strength Of Character
To Do Thy Will!
And When I Must Make Decisions
Be They Ever Be 
For My Soul's Eternal Good
Never Doubting
The Power Of Jesus Christ My Lord
Who
By The Living Word
The Damned Satan
Withstood!

Help Me To Do The Good I Can
And
Make Me A Good Servant
Of The Son Of Man!
Grant Unto Me Daily
The Measure Of Jesus' Faith
That Is Mine
And
Let Grace To Help
In Time Of Need
Be Mine Ever
And
Always
As You Promised
Never Declined!

Father, You Are Faithful!
Father, You Are Ever Kind!
Let This Humble Servant
Bow In Supplication
And Worship
Before You
Giving Unto You
Your Due
For You Are The Living God
Holy
Divine
Ever To Your Precious Promises
True!

I Love You!
I Bless You!
I Give You My Worshipful Praise!
Receive My Humble Petition
Offered In Jesus Christ's Name
And
Lead Thou Me Forward
Unto The Coming Kingdom
For Which I Daily Pray!
AMEN.
