Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 10/12 Micah 6:8


Audio for today's Pause for Prayer


To do what is just...
If this is what you ask of me today, Lord,
and I know you do,
then keep me honest, fair and true
in what I say, in what I do,
with you and with myself, with others
at home, at work, at school,
in my mind and in my heart:
keep me honest, fair and just
especially when I'm thinking of being anything but...

To love tenderly...
If this is what you ask of me today, Lord,
and I know you do,
then keep my heart and hopes, 
my mind and motives - pure;
help me be gentle with others and with myself;
let my words and deeds be 
tender and strong, firm and tender:
tenderize me, Lord, 
especially when I'm feeling obstinate and grumpy...

To walk humbly...
If this is what you ask of me today, Lord,
and I know you do,
then keep me mindful of your presence
beside, around and within me;
let my steps follow yours,
lead me where I need to go,
shadow me with your presence
and with a gentle hand
lead me in the right direction;
may I walk humbly with others
as I'd have them walk with me:
give me a humble gait, Lord,
especially when I'm about to walk over
or around my neighbor... 

To do what is just...
To love tenderly...
To walk humbly...
If this is what you ask of me today, Lord,
and I know you do,
grant me the grace to be faithful
to what you desire in me,
today...


Amen.
