May Your will be done in me,
May I hear Your voice in the silence,
In the noise of the crowd,
In the music.
May I hear so clearly
That I cannot but follow.
May You speak to me when You will
And may I be so alert
To the sound of Your voice
That I stop and listen,
However busy I am,
However tired, or hungry or angry.
May I hear it like I heard my babies cry,
A voice that cannot be ignored,
For the compulsion of the call,
For the love it contains.
And may I get up and follow.
Call me when You want me, Lord
Fill me with compassion, courage,
Whatever I need
To follow, to obey and do Your will.
Grow me into the person
You want me to be,
Love me into my full potential,
That I may increasingly have the desire
To cherish You.
For I love because You first loved me.
So fill me with such love,
That I have no option but to love
With compassion; so I must reach out
With the courage that enables me.
Lord I know that I can do all things
Through You, who strengthens me.
So Lord, my prayer today is
Whatever it may be.
May you will be done in me.
