This has always been my prayer…

Give me your eyes to see as you do
To see the beauty in any who pass me by 
To see the work of your hand in all creation
To see the goodness in all when only evil appears
To see with love all your children you desperately want home
To see the pain in their hearts from years of abuse
To see the hungry and hurting, to hold their pain
To see the world as you do, through your eyes of love


Give me your love, to fill my heart
To stand strong in my image as your precious girl
To share with the billions whose pain is so deep
To comfort the lost when they can’t see the way
To be gentle and kind to all that I meet
To pray for the ones I never will see
To carry your burden for this dying world
To pour out your love with no selfish desire


Give me your ears to hear your Word
To take it inside, engraved on my heart
To feed me and strengthen me ready to go
To share with those blinded to the truth
To hear the cry of the broken and see them restored
To hear the words you whisper for the hearts of others
To know the truth you speak to impart to all
To listen far more than I ever will speak


Give me your hands ready for work
To minister touch where abandonment rules
To lay hands on the sick and see them healed
To hold the unloveable like never before
To build your kingdom, whatever the cost
To lift to you when all strength is gone
To take the hands of the fearful and lead them forward
To never let go of all that you give


Give me your feet ready to walk 
To go where you call and never look back
To turn from all evil and and follow your steps
To climb any mountain or tread any valley
To run the race without giving up
To step out for those who can’t do it alone
To shake off the dust and always keep moving
To take your name to all the earth


Give me your all, hold nothing back
I’ll go all the way, whatever the cost 
Take all of me, and use me God
This life is all yours, it’s the only way
