The Weakest Link (A Prayer for Strength)


In the stillness of morning,
I wait in churning anxiety.
I pray The Lord will open
the shutters to my heart and still
it's frantic beating.

Oh, that I could be stronger
and wait patiently for God's
answers to prayer.  I pray
to be mired, so deeply, in trust
with him that all doubt is

Condition the channels
of my thinking, oh Lord,
and let me rest on the wings
of peace that you have promised.
Condition my soul to place hope
in you and discard the things
of earth.

Teach me through trust and hope
to wait for your divine guidance.
Give me strength as we forge
an everlasting chain of faith--
a chain as strong as its weakest
link--please God, forgive my
human frailties
