Oh, For A Teachable Spirit! - A Prayer

Oh To Be Teachable!
Oh, To Be Meek!
Oh, To Be Willing To Be Instructed
And
Christ's Faith To Boldly Seek!


Unto Thee, Lord
I Lift Up My Eyes
To Gaze Upon Your Majesty
Even As Sin
I Decry
For
I Desire Your Blessing

And
 My Sin I'm Confessing!

I Desire In The Everlasting Kingdom
My Own Promised Place
So, Please
Father
In Mercy
Let Me Not Hanker After Things
That Tend To My Disgrace!


I Subscribe Not
To Wants Many!
I Acknowledge Of Needs
Few!
I Long For The White Robe
Of Christ's Righteousness
And
I Plead Lord
Let Me Not Lean
To My Own Understanding
So That Satan
Can't Cause Me
From Your Truth
To Be Askew!


I Am Your Child, Lord
And
I Accept Your Offer Of Salvation
Which Puts You
Under Obligation
To Teach Me
Lead Me
Guide Me
Correct
Feed Me
Get Me Safely Home
For I Commit To You
My Will
My Way
Praying Ever
In Holy Faith
To See You
With My Own Eyes
In The Day
When Faith
Becomes Face!


I've Been To The River
And
I Have Been Baptisted!
Please Pour Out Your Spirit
Upon Me
And
Don't Let Me
Prophesy
Smooth Things
Nor
Comfortable Lies!


I Am Leaning On You, Lord!
Let Me Your Ways Learn!
Let Me Be A Faithful Witness
And
Not Your Truth Spurn!


I Desire To Hear
"Faithful Servant!
Welcome!
Well Done!"
And
Pray That My Jesus
In Great Glory
Will Soon Come!
In Jesus Christ's Name
I Humbly Plead
And
In Confidence Stand!
AMEN.
