A Prayer To Do Right
A Prayer for August 11
Righteous true God You are my light,
Humble I come and ask for grace.
Forgive the times I turn from You.
Struggles to do wrong shout at me,
Tempting me in thought and in deed,
Passions seems to take up my heart.
Prevent that I do the wrong act.
Power to do right comes from You.
Create in me a new clean heart,*
Remind me You are near my side,
Renew in me a view of love.
Abide in my thought and my word,
Direct my heart to love the good.
Remove the fog that hides the need,
Display to me where I should serve.
Permit that I go forth with peace-
Bearing Your good news of new life,
Open my eyes to works of love.
Strengthen me to live such a life
Filled with good deeds which says, "Yes...
Worthy are You, that I do right."
* Psalm 51:10
We all struggle to do right. But that is what proves that God is worthy of our lives. If challenges did not come we would not grow in character or in our understanding of the greatness of God. When we do right it is a statement that we believe in right and therefore a testimony to God.
