Grace for the Weary

Lord, we know your words, “The Lord God has given me a well-taught tongue, so I may know how to sustain the weary with a word”

I am one of those wearied souls, lord. I am wearied with my temptations, wearied with inward trouble.

So now, Lord, Speak a word in due season to this poor, wounded, and wearied soul.

Let me serve you, Lord – that us all my desire. Let me see you as you please when you please.

I am done, Lord, I am done. I have questioned and questioned my condition these many years. And I see there is no end of such questioning. I get nothing by it.

I am a poor, weak creature, and I fear I will never be able to bear testimony of the truth of Jesus Christ. But you have said, “I will give power to my two witnesses.” I am one of your witnesses. Now then, lord, give power to me, for I am poor.

I see the sinfulness of sin, so let me also see the graciousness of grace and the fullness of Christ. I come to you for righteousness, because I see my sin I exceedingly sinful.

Lord, keep my soul in the ocean of your free love. amen.

William Bridge
