Make Me a Saint

Make me a saint, O God,
Not by my own merit,
But by transforming grace.

Make me a follower of Christ,
With sights set only on him,
His word my power and guide.

Make me a lover of the lost,
To speak salvation’s terms,
Going into the world.

Make me a friend in deed,
To hear my brother’s heart,
Extend a hand to help.

Make me a worker with fruit,
Whose efforts make a difference,
A light that glorifies.

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
