I NEED YOU NOW
My sweet and amazing friend, I need You now.
ask that You speak and act through me somehow.
Please keep my thoughts forgotten and far away.
Let every word I speak be Your words today.
Lord, plan now
what my words will be,
Prepare me for speaking only words from thee.
Please replace my words with Your words of wisdom and love.
Fill me with patience,
peace and discernment which come from above.
Let Yourself shine out from me and anoint me, I pray,
In spite of my own shock, grief, anger, broken-heartedness and dismay.
Fill me with Your Spirit and the words I will say,
Fill me with love and compassion this day.
Take over for me as I may want to cry and scream,
still, let my words be the words You deem.
Cleanse my attitude through Your presence,
Leaving only Your will, love and patience.
Allow me to be and live
as Your true follower.
Allow me to be a true believer.
Remove all that would temp me to compromise,
Keeping me loving and wise.
I ask for all these things in Your name,
May Your name be praised; Your words never spoken in vain.
Father, help us to listen to your
voice and obey, using your tender yet powerful words to tell the world about your grace and love and mercy.
Hebrews 10:38 For you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will
of God and receive what is promised. (RS)
