1. Father,
May I praise your name,
Serving in all I do;
Then we will share my exile here,
For I belong to you.

2. Jesus,
May I face each day
Bearing my cross anew;
Then we will share each heavy load,
For I am part of you.

3. Spirit,
May I hear your voice
Teaching me all that’s true;
Then we will always live in love,
For I am one with you.



1. You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him (Luke 4:8; NLT).

You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).

2. If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me (Luke 9:23; NLT).

Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body? (1 Corinthians 6:15; CSB).

3. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth (John 14:17; NLT).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him (Philippians 3:8; NLT).

The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him (1 Corinthians 6:17; NLT).

    • I echo this for you today, Alan. Loads of prayers flying to God that you will get all the help you need, and be given the courage to face every trial. With love from Ruth.
      PS I’m writing a two special prayers for you. The first came to me yesterday, and I wanted so much to publish it today, but it’s not quite ready yet. I was thinking about this today, when I suddenly saw how perfect God’s timing is, and knew that it will be ready at exactly the right moment. Then that inspired another prayer, which I’m writing today! These 2 blogs will have your initials in the dedication, so you will know they are especially for you XXXX
