A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Friday 11/25


Thanksgiving weekend will not even be over, Lord,

    earlier than we’re lighting a candle on the Introduction wreath

        and starting a brand new yr of grace,

    a brand new yr of telling and residing once more

        the thriller of life that is ours in your love…


A brand new yr of grace, Lord:

    a contemporary begin

    a clear slate

    a second likelihood!


Sounds good to me, Lord,

    seems like one thing I would like

        – and simply in time!


Trying again on the yr simply previous

I am not pleased with, or happy with, 

    all I did  – or didn’t do –

and a brand new starting,

    in your good graces,

is simply what I would like in my coronary heart and soul

    to get again on monitor with you…

So, please settle for, Lord, a number of resolutions,

    and hold me devoted to what I pledge

        – and to you who’re all the time so devoted to me…


I resolve, within the new yr of grace forward,

    to spend extra time in prayer every single day,

time alone with you, my God,

    you who all the time have time for me…


I resolve, within the new yr of grace forward,

    to take step one in making peace

        with somebody with whom I am at odds,

    – and with you, too, Lord, in any manner

        my coronary heart’s not but one with yours…


I resolve, within the new yr of grace forward,

    to simplify, simplify, simplify, Lord,

        my stuff, my belongings, my schedule and life

    to make extra room for what’s really worthy

        of you, my time, my desires, my love…

I resolve, within the new yr of grace forward,

    to open my coronary heart (and my pockets, too)

        in methods extra beneficiant than I’ve ever been;

    to achieve out and serve these really in want

        ’til I really feel the pinch of going with out

            that so many expertise every single day…


I resolve, within the new yr of grace forward,

    to search for, hearken to, heed and observe

        your Spirit’s whispers of knowledge and counsel;

    to open my coronary heart to no matter you ask, Lord,

        to observe your steps wherever they lead,

            to worth your phrase above some other…


These are my resolutions, Lord,

    and it could possibly be I’ve made a number of too many

however these are issues I have to work on

    and in each case I will want your assist:

left to my very own units – I will fail

    however along with your grace I can change and develop

        within the new yr of grace simply forward…


Shield 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…
