Not About Me
Cover me, Lord
in your comfort,
So I can testify of your kindness.
for spiritual battle,
So I may witness your victory in the midst
from my own self-destruction,
So I rely on your ways and understanding.
on righteous paths,
So I can be secure in your love.
to live on a Roman road,
So I can lead others along the way.
to grow more fruitful,
So I can better serve those in my path.
with your armor,
So I might recognize and defeat the enemy.
with your Word,
So I might always do well in your eyes.
with your joy,
So I will be a contagious light among others.
from my fears,
So that I may stay courageous.
to share good news,
So others may know of your goodness.
in your enduring love,
So I might not falter or grow weary.
in my temptation,
So that I don’t sin against you.
in my error and sin,
So I might testify of your tender mercies.
from my judgmental ways,
So I don’t dismiss others too quickly.
when I think highly of myself.
So I might only rely on your strength.
from my opponent’s harm,
So that I may show them your loving kindness.
for today only,
So my trust is always and only for you.
Show me, God,
in all these things;
how to serve, not for me:
but for Kingdom sake
