My Prayer

“Lord Jesus, make Thyself to me

A living bright reality;

More present  to faith’s vision keen

Than any outward object seen;

More dear, more intimately nigh

Than e’en the sweetest earthly tie.” 

An anonymous prayer that impacted me in my youth.

Faith

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,

And looks to God alone;

Laughs at impossibilities,

And cries “It shall be done!”
