A NEW YEAR PRAYER


Precious Heavenly Father ….

May our faith be strong as we journey on
In the start of a brand-New Year
And our days be blessed with peace and rest
And freedom from doubt and fear

As we lift our hands and voices, Lord
In heartfelt thanks and praise
We’re grateful for the light You shine
Through darkest nights and days

Bring comfort, Lord, to those who weep
Whose hearts are filled with sorrow
O Saviour, give them strength, we pray
To face each new tomorrow

The Light of life and hope are You
The Rock on which we stand
O Sun of Righteousness, we pray
For healing in this land

Forever be our shelter, Lord
Throughout each night and day
And bring to pass Your perfect will
O Saviour, God, we pray.

Thank You, Lord .. Amen.

Lord, Be My Compass

directory-1495843_960_720

Dear Lord, be my compass as I journey on
My trust is in You Lord, for You’re never wrong
With You in the picture, I know I’ll succeed
With Your hand to guide me, I know You will lead

In the way I should go and the path I should take
Please guide all my steps and each move that I make
Whichever direction You’d have me to go
Please help me to follow ~ help me to know

For You are my Captain and focus of faith
My Alpha and Omega ~ on You Lord I wait
To run on without You, I’m certain to fail
Like a ship on the sea, without a firm sail

Shine on my path ~ each day and each night
Surround me, O Saviour, with heavenly Light
I’m trusting You, Jesus, my joy and my song
O Lord, be my compass as I journey on

Uphold Me


cropped-file8371286030197-morning.jpg

Uphold me, dear Lord
Guide my feet, lest I fall
Help me never to stumble
And never to stall.
Please help me to trust
In Your goodness alone
Lord help me each day
Not to walk on my own.

For there is no fault Lord
Or failure in You
And there is no limit
To what You can do.
Please wrap me, enfold me
O Lord in your arms ~
Blow storms away, Lord
Let the tempest be calm.

Let peace reign within
When anxious thoughts rise
So I may press on
For that heavenly prize.
Enthroned in my heart
Each moment, each day
Be glorified now and
Forever I pray.

Amen…

I Lift My Soul To You

I Lift My Soul to You

Even now, at the end of the year 2015,
whatever your struggle may be, God cares.
This prayer may echo the cry of your heart.
