Monday Prayer: I Only Need You, Lord…
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
I only need You, Lord, when I rise up and when
I sit down; when I go out and when I come in; when I am quiet and when I am
active; when I am alone and when I am with others; when I am healthy and when I
am ill; when I am up and when I am down; when I am on the go and when I need to
I only need You, Lord, when my lungs need to
breathe; when my blood needs to flow, when my body needs to move; when my
muscles need to work; when my mind needs to think, when heart needs to love.
I only need You, Lord, for as long as birds need flight, for as long as whales need the sea, for as long as clouds need moisture, for as long as wildflowers need raindrops, for as long as sunflowers need the summer sun.
I only need You, Lord, for this present
moment, for the moment when You take me home, for all the moments in-between,
and for all the moments ever after.
grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness (2
Corinthians 12:9 NKJV).
