By Terry Massango, Captain –
Meet with you at sunrise I did
Afternoon prayers just splendid
At bedtime for countless blessings I prayed
Through the night the angels stood guard.
Now, fame and success I chase all day long
Rushed, meaningless prayers fail to make me strong
I am living just a life of Christian façade
Only as a shadow of the holy man God made.
Daily devotions I avoid like a plague
I despise advice from a godly colleague
In times past my heart would not settle
Through prayer the devil I would wrestle.
My prayerless life today you have revived
Many days without prayer I barely survived
Today, you have renewed my strength
In you, o Lord, I put my trust.
Jesus, you have shown me love despite my sin
Jesus, you have forgiven me to bring me in
No matter how stupid and lost I had become
You have always extended your loving arm.
Weekly fasting, daily prayers my goal
Through it all, you will restore my soul
With your Holy Spirit’s power I will not fail
As I stay safe in your everlasting arms, oh God.
Your great blessings I anticipate
My life at your altar I consecrate
In your suffering and glory I partake
To receive the glory in Heaven that awaits.
