Prayer

For those who serve to protect
In the Lords arms be kept

For the hungry and the poor                                                                                                That the Lords abundance be at their door

For the heart filled with anger and rage                                                                              Allow the Lords peace to unlock the cage

For those lost in addiction
To overcome through the Spirits conviction

For newcomers to the race
And the marathon runners enduring pace

For the last will be the first
Before God there is no best or worst

From His love no place to hide
We must cast our old self aside

It is not one another we fight
But the evil hidden from sight

Do not judge others but seek the heart
And pray for the Spirit to take part

For freedom from affliction
Where humility is given permission

And on our knees might we seek the face
Of the God of mercy and abundant grace!
