My Traveling Companion

Dear Lord; Happy Tuesday Father!

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today not in pride,

But from humility.

Not in stability,

But from within my brokenness.

Not as a man,

But as Your Child.

Walk with me Father,

And be my Strength.

I seek Your presence Lord;

Your divine touch that rights my troubled spirit,

Your radiant visage that lights my path,

Your comforting embrace that soothes my anxious heart,

And Your guiding hand to lead me.

Walk with me Father,

And be my strength.

I’m tired Lord,

And weary,

And burdened,

And fearful;

And Your voice seems quieter than usual.

Help me silence that dissent Lord,

And free my heart from those things that obscure You from me.

Walk with me Father,

And be my strength.

Draw me to You Lord;

Allow me haven in Your tender mercy,

That I might shed my soul of earthly trials,

And focus on Your will.

Though the road before me twists and turns,

My Traveling Companion knows the true path.

Walk with me Father,

And be my strength.

    This is a beautiful prayer, Phil. I think we could all pray this, “free my heart from those things that obscure You from me.” Walk with me Father, and be my strength. Amen!

    That is absoluetly beautiful Phil! So glad I am up reading your blog at midnight!:))) This speaks to me more than I can say, “And Your voice seems quieter than usual. Help me silence that dissent Lord.” Oh I so feel like this today. He seems quiet, but I think its because I haven’t been listening…:)

    This is lovely Phil! That is my prayer every morning, that I can hear His voice and feel His presence guide me and direct me to say the right things and make the right choices. I long for His companionship every step of the way! :)

    Blessings and hugs,

  7. Simply beautiful! I SO needed to hear these words today; you cannot believe how perfectly they have met me where I am . . .

    This is just lovely Phil, beautifully written words.

    Dear Heavenly Father, walk with my friend Phil, uplift him and guide his steps, be his strength when he is weary and tired, show him the way father, free his heart to hear your voice, fill him with your peace and wrap him in your love. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
