Prayer For Pure Perspective


 Learn to do right; seek justice and correct the oppressor.
 Defend the fatherless and plead the case of the widow.”
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best of the land.…
Isa. 1:17-19 

"Oh God, make us willing and obedient"

For ears to hear and eyes to see
For souls that pant, my Lord, for Thee
Lest deaf and blind and starved we grope
In vain to find Your Living Hope

For longing keened by your commands
For faith to trust Your nail-scarred hands
For love to take the tender lead
Lest we follow lust, pride or greed

For diligence when dreams distract
Or logic seems to challenge fact
Lord, shine through us, pure and devout
Beyond a shadow of a doubt

Protect us from the evil one
Comfort us with ‘Thy will be done’
For You have washed our sins away
Thank-you. In Jesus’ name we pray
Amen
