Prayer for 2014 by Dot Zweil




Prayer for 2014


When we wield the sword

As Peter did that night,

People will not hear our words

When we put their hearts to flight.


In the year to come

Lord, help me put the sword away

And seek to edify with words;

Those for whom I pray.


Give me words of grace and hope

And speak through me, I pray,

Teach me words of life to speak

To those who go astray.


Fill me with Your presence, Lord

And in me shine Your light

Help me sheath my earthly sword,

To trust Your power and might.


–Dot Zweil   January 2014

“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29
