Lord, help me...

Lord, help me begin each day, 

denying self,
surrendering to You,
living in the power of your sweet Holy Spirit.

Father, forgive me for any time I have,

diluted the gospel of Christ,
watered-down my theology of who You are,
cheapened the precious blood of Jesus.

God, you are my everything.

My life-giver.
My soul-satisfier.
My thirst-quencher.

My hearts desire is to be ever,

seeking your face,
expecting Your presence,
learning who You are.

I want to know You in the deepest,
most intimate relationship possible.

I do not want to possess a dead faith.
I desire to have a faith that produces good works.
Works that bring glory and honor and praise only to You.

I want to embrace your,

self-existence,
self-sufficiency,
self-dependence.

You are Creator of all.
You are breath and life.
Beginning and End.
Sweet Manna from heaven.
The Living Water.

And I adore You.

Beautiful, Beth! I agree with Elaine...such an incredible prayer! You are an inspiration to me, sweet friend.

You grandbabies are precious...I know you miss them terribly. I hope you get to see them very soon!
