Keep us from confusion

Holy Father, keep us from confusing our own thoughts with any still, small voice we think comes from you, or with impressions considered to be of divine origin. Rather, let us meditate day and night on the Word, for these, far from vague inner voices, contain vigorous and specific truths that will change us and energize us. Continue reading

Unknown the evil face

Unknown the evil face behind
Those gentle words and pleasant smiles;
So make me see, where others are blind,
The hidden intent of the  devil’s wiles. Continue reading

Early every day I’m pleading

Early every day I’m pleading,
Save me, Lord, your help I’m needing:
Satan lies to assail me, waiting,
Tempting, biding, luring, baiting. Continue reading

Lies of the devil

O Lord, the lies of the devil bind me to him, but the truth of the gospel frees me to love and serve and rejoice in you.

Satan tells me that I am alone and powerless to resist. You have shown that you are always near and ready to help. Continue reading

When liars entice

Temptation

Lord, keep my foot from Satan’s snare,
Be it subtle whisper or brazen dare;

That written power to make him fly. Continue reading

When we grow faint and frail

When we grow faint and frail,
Let not our tempers flare,
Let not our tongue come untied,
Let trials not cause despair.

Keep the cord from fraying,
Keep our feet from straying,
Keep our wills from swaying,
Be our certain strength and guide.

The flesh is weak and weary,
Our eyes are tired and teary,
The path is dry and dreary,
Let your power in us prevail.

Keep me living on the edge, my Father

O Lord, the evli one would lull me into a sense of false security, to rush and overwhelm me suddenly, to take me unawares. Keep me living on the edge, my Father, ever on guard, never asleep, so I can be holy, as you are holy.
