My Heart’s Prayer
Oh God, guide the thoughts that enter my mind,
Cleanse me, so righteousness is what you’ll find;
Place around my life, a hedge of protection,
So I may grow wise as I follow Thy perfection!
Oh God, guide the steps on every path I take,
Keep me close, so I don’t make foolish mistakes;
Lead me with Thy strong, righteous hand,
Cause me to listen when you give a command!
Oh God, guide the desires that live in my heart,
Keep me in Thy will, to never stray or depart;
Teach me obedience in this life as I live,
And when I fail you, please cleanse & forgive!
Oh God, guide my life whenever there’s a need,
Shine in me daily, for others, Thy glory to see;
I pray you’ll be my Teacher, Leader, & Guide,
So people see Thee radiating through my life!
