Lord, show me how to reach them
Give me wisdom to set their steps aright
Give me your oil to dress their wounds
Your wine to calm their nerves
I am willing to be your servant to them
I am willing to be your voice in their ear
They are lonely, they are hurting
They do not know a better way
If you will use me, I will tell them
Help me yield my tongue to you
I long to soothe them with your salve
I want to tell them of your love
Change me, Lord
Make me more like Jesus
May I be a prayer of love
Let me stand up and be counted
I want to contend for what is right
Help me be a good example
Teach me how to be like you
Come love them through me

Stephen Pursell, 1/25/02
