Dwell in Me this Day

by

Dwelling Lord,

my soul

heart,

sing for joy.

 

My God,

blessed strength,

pilgrimage of strength.

Hear my prayer.

Listen to me.

 

One day, a thousand elsewhere,

I would rather

dwell

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. 

Amen.
