PRAYER : Open My Eyes, Lord!





Oh, Lord,
You Fill My Eyes
And
I Beseech You, Please
To Let Me Not Be Impressed By
The Vaunted Temporal Prosperity
That Causes Its Recipients
To Believe That
They're Godlike
And
True Divinity!

Let Me Not To Be Impressed By
Possession Of Prized Things
That Will Surely Like Thin Paper
Fabulously Burn
And
Help Me, Loving Father
Help Me
Your Blessed Grace
Not To Spurn!

When I Awaken
On The New Day
Help Me Ever To Thank You
For The Blessings
For Which I Cannot Pay!
For The Love That You Bestow
For The Protections
Against The Evil
That I, Facing
Do Not Know!

When I Rest, Lord
Let Me Rest Humbly
Quietly
In Your Fear
Knowing
That The Eternal God
My True Father 
Is Ever Near
And 
Gives Ear To My Prayers!

Help Me Speak My Heart To You
Knowing That You Are Both
God And Friend, True!
Help Me Not To Indulge
In The Useless Thought
That I Can Myself Save
In Life
Nor After Death
In The Arising From The Grave
And
Help Me Not To Fall
For High Flung Base-Born Fallacies
Comforting Myself
With Very Real Lost-Men Lies
And
Denying Eternally Real Saving Truths!

Open My Eyes, Lord
To See My True Condition
And
Help To Understand
And
Accept That
Without Jesus
I'm Facing A Collision
Of
What Is
And
What Almighty God Says Is To Be
And
Help Me To Firmly Decide
In Heavenly Love
Forever To Abide!

Father,
Help Me Not To Be Ashamed
Or
Afraid
To Share My Faith - It's Real
And
Help Me To Stand Up For Truth And Right
Even If My Temporary Temporal Standing
It Does Well And Truly Blight!
You Promised Never To Leave Me
Nor Forsake Me!
I Am Depending On You, Lord!

Father,
You Promised
That You Have For Believers
A Thousand Ways To Save
Ways That We Know Of
And
Thank God
We Know You
And
That Is Enough!
Help Us To Hold Up
So That We May Stand Up!

Help Me And The Brethren
To Hold Fast To The Blessed Hope
And
Help Us By Grace
Through Dear Mercy
With This Life To Daily Cope!

Father,
Gross Wickedness Abounds!
So, As You Have Promised
Let Grace Multiply
And
Help Us Who Truly Believe
To Make Our Calling
And
Election
Sure
So That In The Great Day
Unto Jesus Christ 
We Shall Go
To Live With Him Forevermore!

Grant Us The Victory
Over Sin
So That Through The Pearly Gates
We Shall Have The Right To Walk In!

Save The Beloved
For With These Petitions
In Jesus' Name I Plea!
I Love You, Lord!
AMEN.
