This is the opening prayer I wrote to use for worship on Sunday. It is loosely based on the hymn, “O Master, Let Me Walk With You”. Now, I don’t claim any artistic ability when it comes to writing “poetry” (if that is what you can call this), I’m just happy I got stuff to rhyme 🙂
Oh well, in the end, may GOD be praised, right?
O Master, let us ever walk with you in lowly paths of service true.
Help us, the slow of heart, to believe in you; and may Your children give the glory Your name is due.
Teach, oh God, our wayward feet to stay, and guide them in the homeward way.
And when we stray, Oh Master, Lord of all, may Your forgiveness help us, in Your love, to stand tall.
And so may our path be one of service true and worship of You; that Your glory may ring loud and clear with beautiful tones of victory near.
All praise and glory be to You; gracious and humble and thankful for You.
In Jesus holy name I pray, Amen.
