Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path
(Psalm 119:105; NLT).
1. May I find my feet, Lord,
As a Christian,
Trusting you, alone,
To be my guide.
2. May I roll my sleeves up,
As a Christian,
Serving you in others,
3. May I do my best, Lord,
As a Christian,
Loving you in others,
4. May I stand my ground, Lord,
As a Christian,
Growing more like you,
Till we are one.

God has united you with Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:30; NLT).

2. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever (Psalm 23:6; NLT).
3. The world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from from the Father, but are from this world (1 John 2:16; NLT).
4. The one thing I ask of the Lord – the thing I seek most – is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life (Psalm 27:4; NLT).
When I awake, I will see you face to face and be satisfied (Psalm 17:15; NLT).
When you were young, you were able to do as you liked;
you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go.
But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands,
and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.
(John 21:18; NLT).
1. Lord, as I get older,
I find I must let go
Of all I take for granted,
But, instead, you make me grow.
2. I’ve had to let my looks go,
My vanity and pride;
My status and my ego,
But, instead, you are my guide.
3. I’ve had to let my strength go,
My energy and health;
My work and independence,
But, instead, you give me help.
4. I’ve had to let my past go,
My childhood, my abuse;
My bitterness and hatred,
But, instead, you teach me truth.
5. And I will have to give up more:
My body, life, and breath;
But I will gladly let them go,
To merge with you, in death.
1. Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong (Ephesians 3:17; NLT).

Hello, everyone. I’ve just discovered that yesterday’s post again only reached those who follow me by email. I don’t know why this happened, but will try to guard against it in future. Meanwhile, I’m re-posting that day’s prayer, so no one will miss out. I’m really sorry this happened.
How powerful you are, Lord God, I love you.
My rock and refuge every day, I love you.
May I walk in your narrow way, I love you,
And always praise your name, and pray, I love you.
How wonderful you are, Lord God, I love you.
My teacher and my steadfast guide, I love you.
May I give up all hate and pride, I love you,
And always journey at your side, I love you.
How glorious you are, Lord God, I love you.
My advocate and comfort still, I love you.
May I thank you for good and ill, I love you,
And always try to do your will, I love you.
