Keep me ( a prayer)

Keep me Lord,

as a candle burning

loves pure light,

between hope and despair,

faith and doubt,

life and death.

+

Keep me grounded,

grounded in your reality,

and not the lie where wealth

and power reign.

+

Keep me open,

that I might hear your voice

stilling me in the storms,

and anchoring me in the calm,

lest I should drift away unknowingly.

+

Keep me hopeful,

when I stumble and fall, and

when temptation comes,

remind me that my hope is in you,

and not dependent upon my abilities.

+

Keep me faithful,

even when I feel abandoned,

and you seem distant or silent.

Grant me grace-filled reminders

to sustain my days.

+

Keep me moving,

that I might not become a stagnant pool,

so let your living water flow

to me and through me,

a spring of life welling up.

+

Keep me Lord,

as a candle burning

loves pure light,

between hope and despair,

faith and doubt,

life and death.

+

May I be alight with love for you, and for your world.

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, and 2 lovely granddaughters). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
