(Please join me in this prayer to show God’s love to others.)
Thank You for my ability to serve,
An eager heart with pure desire,
Give me opportunities to shine
Your light in shadowy places,
To show this dark world
You exist, You care, You love.
Lift my arms in strength,
Help me to carve out time,
Prioritizing You above the
The loud worldly demands
Give me perseverance to follow through
And ensure me my efforts make a difference
In Your present and glorious kingdom.
Let joy spring forth from these hands
The same joy I have
When You lean forward to pick me up
Like a little child with raised arms.
Help me to serve even my enemies
So that they know
There is truth in Your Word
And therefore be changed to
Serve You also.
None of this would be possible
If not for the Spirit living inside me,
Before the day I said Yes to Jesus
I served only myself and my sinful desires,
Thank You that You have birthed in me something new
For this overflowing sense of love, heavenly Father,
We praise You.
In Christ’s Name, Amen.
