A Prayer of Obedience

Teach each of us Lord, thy loving ways,
On our own we just complicate things.
We experience bitterness and malaise,
Cleanse us Lord from what today brings.

The surgery you do requires no sutures,
In changing hearts that are as stone.
Because you have insight into our futures,
When in the valley's we're never alone.

We oft dig our heels in questioning a thing,
As a reluctant doer we're not being smart.
From God, we know, our blessings spring,
A Christian should always follow his heart.

    Amen beautiful if only we would stop and remember to do this first before we let any other emotion out we would do great!
