Lent Prayer 14 – March 18

Lent Prayer 14

increase in me Lord

the gift

of humility.

 

not the false hearted

aw shucks m’aam

t’weren’t nothin’

t’tweren’t nothin’

 

nor the soul harming

denial of value

to dare

 

but the truth telling

knowledge

of both gifts and limit

 

that I may offer

the one

for the good and the

doing

 

and honor the other

for salvation from

despair.
