Today I write my journey’s page,
One day to walk, one day to age.
I pray I write with kinder pen
As words and deeds flow from within.
Though days grow short, my pace now slow,
I’ve much to learn and much to know.
With heart and soul and mind still young,
I pray through me Your song is sung.
I pray for wisdom, words to share,
That touch the heart, help others care.
Instill in me the words to write
That cut through darkness, shine Your light.
Let shadows fade as dawn draws near.
May love take hold, drive out the fear.
This page of life I live today
I pray reflects your path, Your way.

You write each line, each verse, my life.
Some fill with gladness others strife.
I pray Your stanzas form my song
Each word and note where they belong.
I pray my life reflects Your word,
May You be seen, Your song be heard.
Lord write Your song upon my heart
Grant me today a brand new start.
Lord write your verse through word and deed
Keep me attuned to others’ need.
Lord keep my eyes on You today.
Lord light my path show me the way
To live my life that it may rhyme
And play each note in perfect time.
Lord touch my life, adjust each string,
Give me the words Your song to sing.

Lord give me strength I need today
To face what troubles come my way.
Lord help me see your mighty hand
And hear your voice, heed your command.
Before me make the pathway clear
And grant me boldness free of fear.
I pray my walk is straight and true,
I take Your hand, I follow you.
Lord grant me wisdom, not distress,
As life’s road leads through wilderness.
I pray Your living water flows
Through dry parched earth and Your love grows.
I pray that weakness, fear, nor pride
Keep me from walking by your side.
Lord in Your strength I’ll walk today
I’ll hold Your hand, show me the way.

Lord give me words of comfort now.
Pierce through this darkness show me how
To rest in You when skies are gray,
To know your love and care today.
Dark clouds roll in I trust in You,
You give me strength to get me through.
I know the darkness yields to light.
Your love surrounds me through the night.
When days are short, and nights grow long,
May words of comfort be my song.
Let words of comfort that I find
Restore my peace and ease my mind.
Lord help me capture what I’ve heard,
And set me free to share each word.
I pray the verses that I write,
Will spread your comfort and your light.

Oh, Holy Spirit grow in me.
Produce Your fruit from me your tree.
Let Love shine forth that others see
Your Love at work, let hatred flee.
Let Joy abound inside my heart.
A joy that only You impart.
May I know Peace that comes from You
Within my soul each day renew.
When troubles come across my path
May I learn Patience, show no wrath.
Let Kindness touch someone today
Through what I do or what I say.
May Goodness grow inside my soul
Let helping others be my goal.
Lord keep me Faithful to the end,
Staying strong through storms and wind.
May others see Your gentleness.
Your Words of life through me express.
May Self-control be my life’s guide
As your Spirit grows inside.
Lord may I know your Spirit’s care,
Reach out today Your love to share.

Lord thank you for my wife, my friend.
We had no clue our lives you’d blend.
On Valentines we had a date,
Our very first, I wasn’t late.
We both dressed up, we had a ball,
Inside the church’s banquet hall.
I held your hand, we laughed, we played.
We formed a bond; our love has stayed.
It brought us through, though times got tough,
We always knew, true love’s enough.
We’re still in love, we know love lasts,
We’ve shared our journey, shared our pasts.
We’ve had our ups. We’ve had our downs.
But through it all, more smiles than frowns.
When we must part this side of life
We’ll meet again, no pain or strife.

The stillness of the morning soothes.
I gently rock, the glider moves.
This quiet time to start my day
Fulfills my need to write and pray.
I search the scriptures in Your Word
To know the truths I’ve not yet heard.
I pray you’ll help me understand
And share your thoughts throughout the land.
I pray I see your words unfold
To heal our hearts that have grown cold.
I pray I share and can covey
Your love that heals in every way.
May your loving kindness shine.
May others know your love divine.
Lord guide my hand in verse and rhyme.
I thank you Lord for quiet time.

Lord help me live my life today
Attuned to what I do or say.
Lord may my words help others see
Your light reflecting out through me.
Lord may my words help others heal
As I express your love that’s real.
Lord give me words so show that life
Is more than heart ache, toil, and strife.
Lord may my actions show your love.
Upon your hand make me Your glove.
Lord pen the words you’d have me write
That heal the hurts, give blind their sight.
May I be less, and you be more
As I jot down each line, each score.
May I be used in some small way.
May words I write your love convey.

Lord all I am and long to be
Is to reflect your life in me.
You formed me with your loving hand
You gave me breath you helped me stand.
You formed me body, mind, and soul
I am unique, you broke the mold.
Lord help me be just who I am,
No pretense, pride, or glitz or glam.
May I discover all you wrapped
Inside me treasures yet untapped.
Help me Lord to always grow
Uncover more that I should know.
May I be brave and not conformed,
Explore the depths of who you formed.
Lord help me strive to reach the goal
To walk with You and be made whole.

I pray you guide me as I walk,
The words I say, and how I talk.
I pray you’ll guide my steps today,
You’ll guide my thoughts, and what I say.
Give me the words to share your love,
And tune my heart to things above.
I pray you guide the words I write.
May they reflect your perfect light.
Your love is pure, your love is true
I know the joy of life brand new.
You gave me life, you freed my soul,
There’s no more guilt you’ve made me whole.
Your love is strong, your love is pure.
What comes my way I can endure.
I thank you Lord I know your love.
You guide my steps from up above.
