Drop into my Heart By Brenda Drake

It took a while for me to realize I am unable to do anything of value without the Lord’s help.  I count on His help in everything for now I know my limitations;   I am weak, selfish, and not all that smart; but I also recognize He is shown strong in my weakness. 

Drop into my Heart

Drop into my heart the wisdom I need for this day.
Give me ability to reach and for another pray.
Live loud in me as I proclaim,
The power and majesty of Jesus’ name.
Let it be Your light that shines;
To assure and help another as they seek to the treasure find.
Speak loud through me Your life-giving word,
So it is truly a message from heaven heard.
Steady my step, pave ahead my path,
Give me authority to conquer every foe right where I am at.
As I draw near for my daily supply,
Fill me up with your goodness on high,
With Your love, Your kindness, Your understanding deep,
Your joy, Your strength and abiding peace.
Every morsel that You share with this vessel of clay,
I will attempt to give away.
As You drop wisdom in I am able to flow,
Successfully with You from soul to soul.
This request is huge and I almost wonder at my plea.
But this I know, it is Your passion I seek.
It is Your love, Your touch, and words I crave,
So I will believe I receive the requests I have made.

Psalms 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:
therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.

Help me Look Ahead By Brenda Drake

Prayer in troubled times

A prayer in troubled times.

Help us Look Ahead

With all that’s happening we lose sight of the joys ahead.
In the present world condition… our heart begins to dread,
There are terrible plights of humanity in every land;
So many lost and hurting people unable to the way understand.
The number of the hungry and the victimized grow each day.
Our heart hurts and we turn our eyes away.
But the pain and misery cuts a path deep,
Their desperate conditions in our mind we keep.
If we are not careful, when we get so caught up in the world’s woes,
We lose sight of the joy deep within our soul.
Help us Jesus to be able to lean into Your strength and power,
So our love and joy stays fresh and not discouraged or soured.
Help us to always see the bigger picture of what lie ahead,
So we will not be filled with unneeded stress or dread.
Help us to reach out and touch those ones we can reach,
And give us wisdom to comfort the disheartened and weak.
Allow our words bring a ray of hope to bring joy to another,
So from the worries of the world they too will recover.

John 14:26-27
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
