I need Thy sense of Order

I need Thy sense of Order
    The confusion of the details of living
    Is sometimes overwhelming.  The little things
    Keep getting the my way providing ready-made
    Excuses for failure to do and be
    What I know I ought to do and be.
    Much time is spent on things that are not very important
    While significant things are put into an insignificant place
    In my scheme of order.  I must unscramble my affairs
    So that my life will become order.  O God, I need
         Thy sense of order.

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
    and all these things will be added to you.

One thought on “I need Thy sense of Order

  1. Eric. I just want to say thank you for faithfully searching for and posting these prayers of saints through the ages. It is a “labor of love” and I appreciate the time and effort it demands to bless us in this way.
