A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 10/18


A good friend just lately requested me

    “What would you like out of life?”


That is a extremely large query, Lord,

    and I’ve so many solutions:

    I need to be glad and I need to be wholesome.

    I need to love and I need to be cherished.

    I need to consider and develop in religion in you.

    I need to make a distinction, make a contribution,

        make good decisions and make amends 

            for poor choices.

    I need to develop and study and mature.

    I need to perceive.

    I need to be an instrument of your peace. 

    I need to love what’s good, do what’s simply,

        treasure what’s pure and pursue what’s holy.

    I need to share, generously, of what I’ve,

        particularly with those that don’t have anything. 

    I need to hope and belief in you – at all times.

    I need to be devoted to you, to your phrase,

         to these in my care and to the guarantees I make.

    I need to attain out and assist with a joyful coronary heart.

    I need to know your factand reside by it.

    I need to take pleasure in your magnificence:

        in nature, in artwork, in music, in phrases,

            in my neighbor and in myself.

    I need your grace and your blessing,

        your mercy and compassion

            and your Spirit’s mild, therapeutic contact.


I need a lot out of life, Lord,

however of all my many longings

could these be my best wishes:

    to be such as you,

    to reside my life as you lived yours,

    to point out that I care, to do my full share

    to kneel every evening in prayer

    and be devoted to your love…

Defend me, Lord, whereas I am awake
and watch over me whereas I sleep
that awake, I would hold watch with you
and asleep, relaxation in your peace… 


It’s my want to be just like the Lord,
it’s my want to be like him.

It’s my want to point out that I care,
to be a good friend, doing my full share
‘til the tip, although it’s so uncommon,
via rain and wind, to kneel in prayer.

It’s my want to be a soldier,
sure it’s, for his nice trigger,
to reside my life as he did his.
it’s my want to be like him.

It’s my want to be just like the Lord,
it’s my want to be like him.
