Grace to Guide Us

With faithful devotion,

be watchful in prayer;

forever be thankful,

for the Lord’s tender care.

Pray that hearts be opened,

that eyes would come to see;

may the words we all speak,

proclaim Christ’s mystery.

May we ever be wise,

with all our words and deeds;

each opportunity,

cause a planting of seeds.

May grace be what guides us,

ever seasoned with salt;

may He grant us answers,

that lead all to exalt.

(Responding to Colossians 4:2-6)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that all grace and wisdom come from You. Help us to faithfully seek You all of our days, and grant us wisdom in word and deed. Help us to make the most of every opportunity to be salt and light to the lost. Forgive us for speaking without listening first, and for acting without asking You. Let Your grace guide us so that many may come to know You. Help us to be watchful and open to all that You are asking. Amen.
