(an acrostic prayer)

Coming now to You, O God, we lay down our lives at Your feet and cry out in praise and adoration, O God!

Open the windows of Your grace and shower us again with You, dear Father. We need refreshing and cleansing, O God!

Move us from our comfortableness into Your comfort, Father. We have become too comfortable in our world, O God!

Forgive our lack of concern for those who struggle with death and physical illnesses as well as those who struggle just to make ends meet on a daily basis, Father.  Make us instruments of Your comfort in this uncomfortable world, O God!

Oblige us to see You working in the lives of those we might think are not worth our time, Father. May we have eyes, hearts and souls to see as You see, O God!

Remove the dross of sin from our hearts, Father. Help us to have tender, pliable hearts to show your mercy to everyone we meet, O God!

Tender to us again Your forgiveness and mercy, Father. Help us to grab hold and hold tight to You as You seek to use us to bring Your kingdom into view, O God!

In the name of comfort itself, even Jesus Christ, we pray!  Amen!

The Path Continues…
