Like a Well-Watered Garden
Lord and Savior of mankind, forgive our foolish ways.
Instruct us in Your truth, O God, as we wait on You today.
Kindly show us Your will today, for we want to be Yours.
Enliven our minds with Your word as we seek you this day.
Allow us to know You better and serve You more as we read Your Word and allow it to sink deep within us.
Water us with Your Spirit as You would water the earth with rain.
Enter into our very souls to refresh and to remake us at the very core of our being.
Look into our beings to see the sin and dust as it lies deep within.
Leave us never, as we would want You to stay and show us how live Your way today.
Walk among us, Lord, to guide our footsteps and to keep us on Your path.
Attune us to Your voice, O God, so that we may sing Your songs and speak Your words to a dying world.
Teach us what You require in all areas of our lives as we fast, pray and do.
Evoke in us the will to do as You instruct and to be as You are.
Revive us again, O Lord, so that we may be examples to this world in which we live, examples of Your “well-watered garden” in a dry and weary land.
Envision for us a new creation as you remake and remold and recast us in Your image today.
Deliver us from ourselves, O God, as we seek to live for You today.
Guard us from the “prince of this world” who seeks to destroy and to deceive us each and every moment of each day.
Adjust our vision, Father, as we look on the temptation to do our will and our own “thing.”
Rewind us on Your spool as we have flung ourselves every which way as we have gone our own way.
Determine to grow in us the “want to” to hear You speak even in times of silence, that we may hear and know You, O God.
Eternal in the heavens, we know You are, O God, but Your presence is with us here today as a “spring that never runs dry.”
New each morning are Your mercies, O God. Help us to be Your mercy to others as you lead us along life’s path.
The Path Continues…
