A Christmas Prayer
Time and time again, I have asked you,
“Teach me your ways, show me your will.”
Yet, when you bid me
to abandon everything for you,
I am afraid.
Counting the cost is not the way
of your follower.
Open my frightened heart
to commit my life to you,
Renew my weary soul
with a new passion for your kingdom
and a trusting attachment to you,
my Savior and companion.
