Today, this moment I am stressed
The world has overwhelmed me
I am in need Lord, cleanse my heart
Create in me a kind spirit, confident, whole

I know that wherever I am YOU are
My life, my actions, me-I am under your scrutiny
Your SPIRIT in my is a positive force
A force for goodness and kindness

When you Oh Lord are in control
I am a force for right and good
Your right, Your good
People count in my heart and in my words

Everything you do towards me is good
You love me with a depth and breadth that is breathtaking
All of the minutes of my daily life are valuable
Govern me in such a way that I express You in me

All power is in my mind
It is available all the time
Your strength, your peace is available
I choose, help me Father to constantly choose you

The world is a cesspool and I am passing through
Guide me, equip me, use me
That I might be a helper, an encourager
No matter the state I am in – Make me again like You

You oh Lord, provided my life
Every breath I take, every move I make is a gift from You
Help me today Father to claim my image
Speak Your truth into me-I choose YOU
