Pause for Prayer: FRIDAY 1/22

LIft Me Up by Amy S Turner

Why is it, Lord, that I so quickly
see the problem,
call to mind the hurt,
rehearse the pain,
dwell on my mistakes,
fret and stew in worry
and feed upon my fear?

Why is it, Lord, that I'm so slow
to see your grace,
treasure peaceful moments,
hold fast to every healing,
listen for your whisper,
lean upon your strength,
and drop my troubled heart
into your open, loving hands?

Lift me up, O Lord,
from all that keeps me down...

Open wide my eyes to see
the beauty of your face...

Lift my hands and heart
to you in prayer...

Open up my ears
to your Spirit's voice within...

Touch my mind and heart
where I'm most in need of healing...

Remind me every day
of my blessings, old and new...

Give me strength to live
one day,
one hour,
one minute at a time...

Lift me up, O Lord, out of
all that keeps me down
and let my spirit rise to find its joy
in you and in your love...
