I pray the Lord my soul to keep...
Wait a minute, Lord. I'm confused.
Do I pray for wisdom to understand or courage to act? Do I pray for insight and words to counsel or patience to hold my tongue? Do I pray for strength to just endure or faith to push myself a little further each day? Do I pray for validation no matter the cost or do I just pray for peace? Do I pray to be deaf and blind to the adversary or do I pray for keener sight and sharper hearing to better help others? Do I pray to be protected from all harm and evil or do I pray for discernment to choose the right path?
Or do I just say "thanks"? I don’t know.
I think I'd better just pray for a hole in the crowd so Your hems might brush my fingertips.
