Holy Spirit Hear My Prayer
Holy Spirit that dwells within
hear my quiet searching prayer.
Help me remember you are there,
knowing your presence is everywhere.
You are always untiringly ready,
to take my urgent pleas on high,
knowing my needs better than I.
For if I desire a certain thing,
I may not know the sorrow
in my heart it could bring.
Help my soul hear what is true,
and always trust myself to you,
even when you are hidden from view.
Teach me patience when
earthly things go wrong,
that all my mortal trials
may not seem so endlessly long.
Compared to your vast eternal, kingdom
all things on earth are but a speck of dust,
that you used to form the wayward heart,
and shape a soul that in you must trust.
Placing our love for you above all,
with no earthly allegiance that will fall.
returning to the dust from which it came,
never again to call upon your holy name.
Isaiah 12:2 "Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord,
the Lord , is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation."
