Lord, Let Me Be...

Lord, let me be kind
In all I do and say..
To help lift a spirit
That needs a lift today.

Lord, let me be a servant
Who is willing to share..
The gospel of Jesus
To the lost out there.

Lord, let me understand
Those misunderstood..
To not judge or criticize
But to focus on the good.

Lord, let me bring comfort
To a sick, weary, soul..
Praying to you Father
Make them well and whole.

Lord, let me be the light
That shines so bright today..
To brighten someones darkness
And help them find the way.

Let me be a reflection
Of my Savior up above...
That through the words I write
They will feel his precious Love.

This is my prayer, may it be yours as well.
