“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 37:5

Commit everything you do to the Lord.

Trust Him, and He will help you.

Trust Him, and He will help you

PRAYER…

.

Your way, not mine, O Lord,

however dark it be.

Lead me by Your own hand.

Choose out the path for me.

.

Smooth let it be, or rough,

it will be still the best.

Winding or straight,

it leads right onwards to Your rest.

.

I dare not choose my lot.

How could I think I might?

Lord, guide these stumbling feet;

then I will walk aright.

.

The kingdom that I seek is Yours,

so let the way

that leads to it be Yours,

else I must surely stray.

.

Lord, take my cup,

and it with joy or sorrow fill,

as best to You may seem.

Lord, choose my good or ill.

.

Choose, Lord, for me my friends,

my sickness or my health.

Choose, Lord, my cares for me,

my poverty or wealth.

.

Not mine, not mine the choice,

in great things or in small.

Lord, be my guide, my strength,

my wisdom and my all.

.

Amen.

.

.

[The above prayer is an adaption from an early-19th Century hymn by Horatius Bonar]

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Your way, not mine, O Lord, please guide my stumbling feet.

Lord, be my guide, my strength, my wisdom and my all.

    Thanks for God’s Word and Prayer. It is so good to trust in the Lord. Psalm 62 :”Trust in Him at all times, you people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us”.
