Lord, I can be so very happy
Just sharing your Word with friends.
Please help me in all your Power,
To reach away from sin.
Lord, help me to always respect my friends,
And realize their commitment to you.
Let me help them to be strong enough
To do what you want them to do.
I just want to be able, Lord
To get through every day,
Without ever having to apologize
For saying what I should not say.
Lord, help me to read and understand
The message in your Holy Word.
Then help me to be willing to practice
The things I have already heard.
Lord, help me to stay in touch with you.
Help me leave temptation behind.
I want to search the scriptures
Until I find what I need to find.
