by Kaci Rigney

Lord, I bow my head;
Body wants to rest instead,
But I’ll pray before I seek my bed,

In sleep.

There is so much to say to You, to whisper, and to plead;
To just agree that I’ve done wrong and say You’re all I need.
Help me to live for You in word and in deed.

Hold me.

Be the strength I need to combat fear.
Give clarity to steer clear
Of sin. My prayer, hear.
