Poem- Ongoing Prayer


Ongoing Prayer
Please keep me from pride-
Lord, don’t let me fall.
In all my achievements, I know you do it all.

Please keep me from envy,
Lord, quench those desires.
Make me want only You, burn my heart with your fire.

Please keep me from doubt,
Lord, give me faith like a youth.
When tempted by lies, assure me I have Your Truth.

Please keep me from loneliness,
Lord, wrap me in grace.
To fill all emptiness within, let me see Your face.
