New Year Prayer
If I could ask for just one thing
To crown this year, dear Lord,
I want to know what You are like
For You are my reward.
I want to know You as You are –
Your nature pure and true,
Your thoughts so loving and so kind,
The things You plan to do.
I want to know the things You like
And those that grieve Your soul;
I want to sense when You are pleased
And yield to Your control.
I want to walk with You each day
My constant, faithful Friend;
I want to hear You in Your Word
And spot the gifts You send.
I want to speak to You in prayer
And watch You work for me,
To find Your will and make it mine,
To trust Your guarantee.
I want to know You more and more –
Lord, grant my prayer this year;
For as I seek You, You have said
That I will find You near.

Once again, a great piece, Christina, and a true reflection of what all of us should desire, i.e. to know the Lord’s will and to do it for His glory!
Very apropos for the new year. Great desire and prayer. Thanks
