Prayer

Change

When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things (1 Corinthians 13:11; NLT).

What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:4; NLT).

 

Lord,
My mind sees what it used to see,
In childhood.

My heart fears what it used to fear,
Back then.

But that was many years ago;
Now, I’m full-grown.

I can speak out, apologise,
Explain.

Please help my weary mind to grasp
That life has changed,

So I no longer need to dread
What others say.
