New to the Prayer file

Visited a new church this morning and loved it. This prayer was printed on the back of their newsletter. You can tell a lot about a church by its newsletter, I reckon. I’m serious!

Lord of My Heart

Lord of my heart, give me vision to inspire me that, working or resting, I may always think of you.

Lord of my heart, give me light to guide me that, at home or abroad, I may always walk in your way.

Lord of my heart, give me wisdom to direct me that, thinking or acting, I may always discern right from wrong.

Lord of my heart, give me courage to strengthen me that, among friends or enemies, I may always proclaim your justice.

Lord of my heart, give me trust to console me that, hungry or well-fed, I may always rely on your mercy.

Lord of my heart, save me from empty praise, that I may always boast of you.

Lord of my heart, save me from worldly wealth, that I may always look to the riches of heaven.

Lord of my heart, save me from military prowess, that I may always seek your protection.

Lord of my heart, save me from vain knowledge, that I may always study your word.

Lord of my heart, save me from unnatural pleasures, that I may always find joy in your wonderful creation.

Heart of my own heart, whatever may befall me, rule over my thoughts and feelings, my words and actions.
