By Stephen W. Hiemstra
All glory and honor are yours, Lord,
for you are my fortress
and your presence the hand on my shoulder.
Why do I fear? Why does my grip falter?
I confess that my faith hangs by a thread
for I know that some day my strength will fail
and my only hope is in you.
Thank you for a new day and the opportunity to serve in your name.
In the power of your Holy Spirit,
grant me the strength to be the person that you created me to be
and to be fully present to those around me, each and every day.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
Prayer for a Steady Hand
