Unquenchable Desire

Unquenchable Desire [Prayer] “4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matt 4:4 NKJV Lord, give me an Unquenchable Desire To spend time in your word. Make your words sweeter than honey; More powerful than any sword. Enable me to abide in your word; Make me your true disciple; Help me to adhere to your teachings; Accept every true principle. Give me an intimate knowledge Of your truth to set me free. May your words be my daily food; Complete comprehension to see. May I treasure your words And bury them in my heart. Give me that Unquenchable Desire— Your great love to impart. As a disciple of the Messiah, May I live according to your word; Seek to tell others Of this great hope you afford. May I not sin against you, But even if I should, I ask your forgiveness— Let your peace be restored. Give me an Unquenchable Desire To seek your promises daily; To completely trust your words— Drink them up readily. This desire is supernatural; A desire only you can provide. May your words be my ‘manna’, Until in heaven I reside. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue

    9pnhThis is a poem for the soul. A prayer of comfort to bring peace to the heart and mind. You truely are a disciple that brings the word to others through your own forum. I would say don't ever stop but I know that you won't. Even after you reach the Kingdom of Heaven. Rockman :-)
