My Prayer for the Week

“Give us faith to be strong
Father, we are so weak
Our bodies are fragile and weary
And as we stagger and stumble
To walk where You lead
Give us faith to be strong

Give us faith to be strong
Give us strength to be faithful
This life is not long but it’s hard
Give us grace to go on
Make us willing and able
Lord, give us faith to be strong

Give us peace when we’re torn
Mend us up when we break
This flesh can be wounded and shaky
When there’s much too much travel
For one heart to take
Give us peace when we’re torn

Give us faith to be strong
Give us strength to be faithful
This life is not long but it’s hard
Give us grace to go on
Make us willing and able
Lord, give us faith to be strong

Give us hearts to find hope
Father, we cannot see
How the sorrow we feel can bring freedom
And as hard as we try
Lord, it’s hard to believe
So give us hearts to find hope

Give us peace when we’re torn
Give us faith – faith to be strong.”
