I praise you that you thoroughly know me,
and still love me with an everlasting love.
You know my day before me,
my comings and my goings,
the challenges and obstacles ahead.
Lord please go before me,
give me your advantage,
Spirit level my path before me,
smooth out my way
with your peace, comfort, and grace.
Enclose me under your hand,
hem me in behind and before,
command your angels regarding me,
to protect and defend me
that my feet may not stumble
as I walk in your ways.
Give me a pure heart,
wholehearted and single-minded for you,
that I would have a servant’s heart,
working with a spirit of excellence,
and thanksgiving to you.
Let me throw off every yoke that’s not of you,
from the world, society, others, even myself,
so that I may take on only your yoke that is easy,
your burden which is light,
and learn to follow only you,
gentle Lord, humble in heart.
Thank you for being my Messiah and Lord,
I bless you and praise you for my good inheritance.
