Thoughts from a disciple who writes

Lord, help me stand

2 Comments

Lord, help me stand.

In the midst of every activity, let me stand.

In the teeth of the gale, let me stand.

Amongst the clamor of voices, let me stand.

When thoughts conflict, let me stand.

When all seems at ease, let me stand.

When I know nothing, let me stand.

When accusations fly, let me stand.

When suspicions are directed toward me, let me stand.

When the waters rise and seem set to engulf me, let me stand.

In the darkness and the cold, let me stand.

In the light and the heat, let me stand.

When I am noticed, let me stand.

When I am ignored, let me stand.

When I am included or pushed out, let me stand.

In the silence and the noise, let me stand.

On your promises and your word, let me stand.

Wherever I am, let me stand.

Let me stand.

Let me stand.

Whatever the world throws at me and if suffering comes.

Whenever and wherever I am.

Please Father, give me the conviction, faith, acceptance, grace, strength, power, peace and knowledge to stand.

And when all else fails… let me stand.

  1. Oh love this…. 🙂 sharing on facebook 🙂

  2. Excellent. Thank you for sharing, Nigel. This brings to mind one of my favorite daily prayers:

    “Direct, O Lord, our actions by Thy holy inspiration, and carry them on by Thy gracious assistance, so that every prayer, work, and study of ours may always begin in Thee, and by Thee be happily ended, through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

    God bless!
