My prayer for the week

Today is going quite slowly for me. Maybe that’s because all I want to do is sleep. I had a really amazing weekend. Got to bond with someone I used to talk to occasionally in my church. It was great to get to know her on a different level and guess what, we have so much in common. It’s really great to reach out to people and get to know them beyond that superficial level.

Anyway, I haven’t quite recovered from the weekend. I am currently curating content for my church bulletin and I stumbled on this poem. It captures how I have been feeling over the past few weeks and I think it is a prayer that should be said constantly.

The title of the poem is ‘This is my prayer’ and it was written by Helen Steiner Rice. Enjoy.

Bless me, heavenly Father,
forgive my erring ways,

Grant me strength to serve Thee,
put purpose in my days.

Give me understanding,
enough to make me kind.

So I may judge all people
with my heart and not my mind.

And teach me to be patient
in everything I do.

Content to trust Your Wisdom
and to follow after You.

And help me when I falter
and hear me when I pray.

And receive me in Thy Kingdom
to dwell with Thee some day.

PS – I promise, tomorrow, I’ll be back to my normal self again 🙂
