Prayer is my safe haven each morning,
This morning I join the faithful choir,
Turning our thoughts firstly to God,
I wait this morning in eager expectation.
For the words that God wants to say to me.
Obedience is my act of faithfulness this morning,
Even though my life is scattered in busy activity,
I bring all my uncertainties about today to Him,
Choosing to stand with those who want this too,
Belonging to those who know their poverty,
Yet are willing to share their Creator’s broken heart.
I pray that I will bring peace to the lives that touch mine today,
I will not be afraid of the thought of rest,
Even though the world demands frantic activity,
I trust my life will be a witness to waiting with God,
My family will be well cared for in the midst of a thousand temptations of selfish desires,
I will love courageously knowing its painful risk,
My gifts given with no reserve, no expectations,
Seeking blessing for all those that I serve,
Come peace today, find a loyal heart this morning.
