Aug 14/08

At your feet, O Christ, we lay
your own gift of this new day;
Doubt of what it holds in store
Makes us crave your aid the more;
Even in a time of loss,
Mark, it Savior, with your Cross.

Yes, we would your Word embrace,
Live each moment on your grace,
All ourselves to you consign,
Fold up all our wills in yours,
Think, and speak, and do, and be
Simply that which pleases you.

Hear us, Christ, O, hear our prayer;
Hear, and bless our deepest care.
May your love to us impart,
Loyal singleness of heart;
So shall this and all our days,
Christ and God, show forth your praise.

Good Morning,
I just posted a comment, but forgot that my husband was logged in so when I posted the comment it went under his name so I deleted it.

What a beautiful prayer! I couldn't help but notice your Joshua Project unreached...it's hard to believe there would be unreached people in this day and age isn't it? I will pray.

Have a Wonderful Sonday!
