A Prayer for December

I jotted this down last week, and have shared it with friends. I felt it might be an encouragement to someone here, so I share it with you. A prayer for this busy time of year. May we all listen to the One for whom we live each day.

Father, God in Heaven, teach me to be still.
Amidst all life’s joys and sorrows,
May we seek to do Your will.

Though forgiven and redeemed,
We don’t want to yield control.
Clinging tightly to our own desires,
Regardless of the toll.

So Father, please forgive me,
And loose the grip of my self-will.
I love you Lord and crave your presence…
Please teach me to be still.
