At some point when I was in school, Rev. John Clark, pastor of the Shinglehouse UMC, ran a prayer in the Sunday bulletin that caught my attention. I remember buying transparent contact paper in order to laminate it and then carried it in my wallet for over a decade. I used to pray it every day.
It still is a touchstone for me.
I have no idea who wrote it or what it’s title is. If you do, please let me know! Thanks!
Here it is…
God, give me eyes that I might see The work that can be done by me.
God, give me ears that I may hear The cries of those who need me near.
God, give me lips that I may speak Comfort and peace to all who seek.
God, give me a mind that I may know How to help those who need me so.
God, give me hands that I may do Some large or simple task for you.
God, give me prayer that I may pray Thy help and guidance every day.
And this one thing all else above God, give to me a heart to love.
