Prayer Family of the Week : Steve Deuel and wife.

Lord, we need Your help, we really do,
To think, and talk, and act like You,
Sometimes this life is very hard,
And we must be on our guard,
So fill us with Your holy wisdom
To prepare us for Your kingdom.

God, our Father, we come to You
To find out what You want us to do.
You tell us if we need wisdom to let You know
So You can lead us, so You can show
Us what is in Your eternal plan
For each of us, each woman, each man,
And so we come to You each day
To find out just what is the way.
You tell us if we need wisdom to let You know
So You can show us, let us know
And so we come to You each day
To find out just what You will say.
We know it will go with Your Word,
The wisest words we’ve ever heard.
So help us listen and understand
What You have for us, just what is planned,
Just what You would have us do
To be of greater service to You.
Thank You that You are always near
That You have promised us to hear
Just what we have to say to You
Please help us listen and help us do.
