Seek the face of God before His hand
When talking with Him, was His Son’s command
Before you blurt what you’d like Him to do
Acknowledge His Power and Greatness, and
Remember the models in Matthew and Luke
Put there to help us, not to rebuke
A concerted effort to “pray like this”
Putting God’s work before man’s work.
Begin with a scripture, take time to praise
Definitions, declarations up to Him raise
Let God know you understand who He is
Fronting the battles He already knows.
Ask that Comforter comfort you
He will cover and fill if you choose to
He once shook a building, but filled the souls
Who would leave the place, traveling through
The European landscape. What is His will?
What should we do? It is still
The same, two millennia from then
We have a Great Commission to fulfill.
Make disciples and share His grace
Bold and unashamed, embrace
Without reservation of any kind
Ask Him to enable your body and mind.
