Submit to the Savior

Submit to the SaviorPowerfully pray,

whole-heartedly seek;

and with right motives,

allow ourselves weak.

As we humbly come,

our prayers will be heard;

be bathed in His love,

let our hearts be stirred.

Grieve our shortcomings,

mourn all our mistakes;

for He hears the prayers,

those seeking His face.

Come near to God,

and He’ll come near you;

as we humbly come,

He’ll show what to do.

For He will lift up,

all who humbly seek;

calling us righteous,

to our hearts He’ll speak.

Be not full of pride,

and know that we’re low;

for those who’re humble,

in grace He will grow.

(Responding to James 4:1-10)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Spirit who dwells within us, and teaches us how to pray. Help us to humbly seek You with right motives in our hearts. Forgive us for our selfishness and our pride, and teach us how to make Your priorities, ours. Help us to be gracious and humble in heart, so that many may see Your love through our attitude and actions. Let the lost be found in You, and may Your glory be made known before the masses. Thank You for Your goodness and grace. Amen.
