Lord, teach me to be a better witness;
To share Your Gospel with the lost,
Telling them of Your saving grace
And how You suffered on that old rugged cross.
Teach us to read Your sweet love letters,
The ones You left us in Your word ..
Take more time out to spend with you, Lord,
So Your gentle spirit can be felt and heard.
Teach us to love the things that please You,
To keep Your Commandments in our hearts,
To love one another without condemnation;
With the knowledge that love is where it all starts.
O Lord, teach me to be a better Christian,
Spreading Your words to those I meet,
Encouraging others to reach out to You
In order to fulfill their spiritual needs.
Lord, please, don't allow our hearts to harden
Like a wooden Indian who stands so still.
But, let our love light shine, forever,
As a brightly lit torch burning on a dark hill.
Be of good courage, and He shall
Strengthen your heart,
All ye that hope in the Lord.
