Your Prayer

Burning CandleSit in a darkened room for the personal evangelism meditations and light a single candle at the center as a symbol of the light of Christ shining in the darkness. Concentrate your prayer on the light and relax. Read each verse of the following poem by Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879) in the quietness. Frances was a gifted poet and hymn writer from an Anglican family in Worcestershire and also wrote the wonderful hymn, "Take my life and let it be, consecrated Lord to Thee." Pause and meditate on the following words to take in its meaning and to hear the Lord speak to your heart in your prayer.

Speak to Me

"Lord, speak to me that I may speak,
in living echoes of your tone,
as you have sought, so let me seek,
your erring children lost and lone.

Lead Me

TearsO lead me, Lord, that I may lead,
the wandering and the wavering feet,
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed,
your hungering ones with manna sweet.

Teach Me

O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
the precious things you do impart,
and wing my words, that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.

Fill Me

Teacher and ChildrenO fill me with your fullness, Lord,
until my very heart overflow,
in kindling thought and glowing word, your love to tell your praise to show.

Use Me

O use me, Lord, use even me,
just as you will, and when, and where,
until your blessed face, I see,
your rest, your joy, your glory share."
