PRAYERS FROM WITHIN

17. PRAYER FROM WITHIN Touch my heart where it hurts, Heal all my emotional wounds and cuts. Grease my heart with ointment of joy So potent that no circumstance can destroy. Touch my soul where it sickens And my heart where it weakens. Help me fulfill my purpose in life And be my power over worldly strife. Touch my heart where it deadens And cause me to glorify the Heavens. Make me your beloved, Dear God And silence my foes with your mighty sword. Sweeten my thoughts that had once been sour That I may smile like a sun flower. Endorse the re-birth of my destiny, And protect me from Satan, man’s greatest enemy.
