PRAYER: Father, Bless Your People Unto The Great Day!






Without You, Lord
I Am Lost!

Ignoring You, Lord
Lays Against Me
Great Costs
And Thereby
Makes A Lie
Of Your Sacrifice
On Calvary's Cross
Because
My Self-help Says That
Of My Life
I Am The Best Boss!


Oh, God Most Merciful
Have Pity

And

Be Merciful Unto Me
And

Renew This Old Heart
So That For Thee
It Beats With Constancy!



Let This Old Heart Be Made Anew!

Let My Love For Thee
Not Be Askew
And

Let My Hatred For Sin 
And
For That Damned Devil
Keep Me Daily

Applying To The Throne Of Dear Grace
For
Daily Blessings From You!


Lord,
I Am Reaching For The Hand

That Holds The World
Secure
Safe
Knowing That That Hand
Holds Me Also
For That Hand's Heart
Holds For Me A Fit Place
To Run To
For Rescue
For Help
In Hope
For Provision

And
For Salvation

And
The Means Whereby

Against The Wiles Of The Destroyer
I Can Cope!

Oh, Lord

I Trust You!
I Believe On And In You
And
Behind You, I Walk
Ever Trusting In The Golden Promise
That Heaven Is No Cruel Joke!


Father,
Please Keep Me Faithful!
Please Keep My Peace In You Serene!

Please Make My Willingness To Follow You
A Bath To Keep Me Clean
Sloughed
Of The Love Of The Things Of The Earth
Shucked Of Christ-Denying Greed
And

Toweled In Your Holy Spirit
And

Powdered In Faith
That Will To You Ever Appeal!


Help Me, Lord
Not To Be Weary In Well-Doing

And
Let Not Lack Of Resources
Shorten My Hand
Nor Make Me Glum

Unwilling In The Word Of Truth To Stand!


Please Help Me To Ever Look

To The Living God Of All
And

Claim The Covenanted Promises
And 

Accept
That With God All Things Are Possible

Knowing That He Who
Sees And Knows All
And

Is In All
Will Provide For My Need

That Thing That Is Called Some!


I Believe In You, Lord
Please Help My Unbelief

And
Please Protect Me
From That Wicked One
Who
Of My Salvation
Wills Himself To Be The Malicious Thief!


Help Me, Lord
To Listen!
Please Still My Soul
And
Help Me To Hear
And
To Obey
And
To Walk Surrendered
Toward The Life Of Life
From Whence My Help Comes!

I Love You
And

Into Your Hands, Lord
I Commend My Spirit
For I Know That No Man
Or Spirit Being
On This Earth
Has The Means To Redeem My Soul

From Neither Death Nor Hell -
Save Me!

Save Your Faithful Holy People

And
Bless Us Unto The Great Day
Of Vengence and Redemption
In Jesus' Blessed Name, I Plead!

AMEN.
