A Prayer For This Day


Father, I give to You this day,
I give to You this prayer;
Take it in your arms,
And give me more to share.

Let me feel Your power Lord,
Let me feel Your grace;
Let me spread the Good News,
To those that hide their face.

I rest my burdens in Your lap,
I give them all to You,
Now I feel much lighter,
And my wants and needs are few.

Take me in Your shelter Lord,
Bless my soul and mind;
Let my heart be grateful,
For all the love I find.
