1. Lord,
May I commune with you
In every waking moment.

2. Lord,
May I consult with you,
Each step along the way.

3. Lord,
May I rejoice in you,
And never fail to worship.

4. Lord,
May I give thanks to you,
And never cease to pray.



1. You desire honesty from the womb (Psalm 51:6; NLT).

Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

2. Pray about everything (Philippians 4:6; NLT).

Pour out your hearts to him (Psalm 62:8; NIV).

3. Rejoice always (1 Thessalonians 5:16; NIV).

Worship the Lord in all his holy splendour (Psalm 96:9; NLT).

4. Give thanks in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:18; NIV).

Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

  • May we have humility in coming before His Throne of Grace, just as David did in his hour of need. Let us be confident as David was that the LORD God is our source of all things.

    • Oh, yes, Alan – I’d love to be able to do that. I feel I’m letting God down so badly all the time. Right now, I’m on the third day of a migraine. Since our new priest asked me to become a sacristan, I’ve only been in the right place at the right time to do this task on one single occasion. Yesterday I broke down and talked to my husband about it all. I’m having, all over again, to acknowledge that my health is just too poor and unpredictable for me to take on any kind of task that requires reliability and reasonably good health. I was so pleased to be asked, but I just can’t be reliable. Even the smallest regular commitment immediately becomes a big stress that I can’t handle. Today, somehow, I’m going to have to write to our wonderful new priest, explain, and ask him to find another person. This is so depressing, and really rubs it in how little I do to serve God, and how limited I am. Could you possibly say just one prayer, asking God to understand what I’ve got into, and to help me sort it all out? Meanwhile, may he bless you and S today. With love from Ruth XXXXX
