Prayer Of The Noble Servant
I thank You Father for this morning
And how rest renews my poor spirit
With a fresh power and new courage.
I ask for guidance and Your wisdom
That I may fulfill this day's duties.
Let me not stumble but to endure
And be found worthy if I'm tested.
Teach me to respect Your dread anger
And to find purpose in Your goodness.
In test give regard to my weakness
And in the trials grant me patience,
Let not my temper be my master
Nor a word uttered give me regret.
Let me find virtue in my neighbor,
And see him fashioned in God's image-
For whom Christ suffered to pay ransom.
May I stay loyal to the Gospel,
And not bring disgrace to my Savor
By act of folly or word spoken.
May my actions please You today
And in some little way bless others.
(c) Adron Dozat
