A Family Prayer

A Family PrayerLord, You are Light, You are Love, You are Life,
Fill me with pure breath, pure knowledge and delight,
Watch over my family, keep them safe in Your arms,
Please Oh! dear Lord, let us not come to harm.

May Your sweet Word enter deep within souls,
Cleanse us, teach us, supply all our needs,
Bring us to a realization of our state,
And shelter us deep within, before it’s too late.

Shelter us in the shadow of Your cross,
Where we can find life, where You suffered loss,
Pour our Your mercy and grace, show us how,
To ask for forgiveness, for sins past, future, now.

Cover our home, our lives and our thoughts,
Our speech, our minds and all that falls short,
Of the glory of God, Lord of Lords, King of Kings,
May wondrous in-awe praises, our mouths always sing.

Lord, how we need you, Your compassion and full joy,
Need You to flow through us, Your Salvation to enjoy,
Teach us the fear of God ever-more,
That we might not fear man, circumstances or any closed door.

Oh! precious Saviour, may Your Spirit direct us,
May Your presence Your freedom always surround us,
Help us to remember to number our days,
And may the light of Your Word bring us in step with Your ways.

(in “Fragrance from the Spring”)

    1. This is very humbling Robyn … thank you so much for your sweet comment … I have this framed on my dressing table … there are days when my prayers seem locked in my heart vault and words/praise just cannot/won’t flow … ’tis these days I turn to this prayer and I am so grateful to the Lord for placing it upon my heart so long, long ago … blessings xxx

  1. Beautiful. I especially like how you said, ‘Teach us the fear of God ever-more,
    That we might not fear man, circumstances or any closed door.’ then ended it by saying, ‘Help us to remember to number our days,
    And may the light of Your Word bring us in step with Your ways.’ Lovely prayer poem.
