Dwell in Me this Day

Dwell in Me this Day

Dwelling Lord,

my soul


sing for joy.


My God,

blessed strength,

pilgrimage of strength.

Hear my prayer.

Listen to me.


One day, a thousand elsewhere,

I would rather


in God.


Lord, almighty,

blessed in you.

(Based on Psalm 84)


Dwell in me this day, Lord. 

Help me to feel your presence, 

know your love, 

receive your grace, 

and answer your call. 


Dwell in me this day, Lord. 

Help me to seek you in my need,

to soothe my fears, 

calm my anger, 

relieve my pain, 

and heal my broken heart. 


Dwell in me this day, Lord. 

Help me to see you in my neighbor. 

To offer a helping hand, 

a shoulder to cry on, 

and a meal to feed a hungry soul. 


Dwell in me this day, Lord. 

Help me to know your Word. 

To read the stories of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, 

sing songs of hope and faith, 

pray for the sake of the world, 

and trust the immeasurable love given for me.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
