My Prayers 5-7

I feel I have been blest in every task,
because in all I do I give You praise.
My every thought appears to You unmasked,
when in my heart You give a silent gaze.
You know the things I want and what I need,
but what for me to give the right request.
Each prayer I make to You is like a seed
that sprouts new life when in Your eyes it's blest.
Oh, how I wish dear Lord that all would know
The mercy truth and love that I have found.
Your precious light now gives a gentle glow,
Now with Your dazzlig glory I am crowned.
Now  as I spread your gospel far and wide;
I know in all we do You'll be our guide.

I know in all we do You'll be our guide,
You'll help us through the thick and through the thin.
We never need to run from You or hide,
For staying in your will keep us from sin.
It seems so hard at times to not digress,
but with Your help I know we will succeed.
You know just how to give all men success,
if to Your will each one now learns to heed.
It's not about the job we do that tells
what kind of person that we shall become.
It's giants that with Gods help one dispels,
with people that we teach to overcome.
So think about each choice you make today;
Our choices will decide where some will stay.

Our choices will decide where some will stay.
with things we do throughout life's distant path.
We change what others do along the way,
but sin that's not confessed will bring God's wrath.
I know not where this road in life may lead,
though I shall let my faith in you abide;
Each step I take in faith I'll not concede:
Because I have now put your will inside.
Each day with you I'm blessed more than before
You give to me beyond what I require;
I look to You for help and You give more,
than I could ever get through my desire,
Now we'll serve you as enemies rearm;
Dear God I pray you keep our men from harm.
