A Prayer About Being Endowed With Splendor
Most Precious Lord Jesus, Gentle And Wonderful God, Truly Awesome And
Ever-present Holy Spirit,
Precious Lord Jesus, I love you.
When I was thirsty for your love, you invited me in and gave me drink of
your living water.
When I was in need of your soft and gentle ways, you stood next to me and
poured your love over me so I would be soft and tender as I lived out the
hard and bitter days of my life.

Give to me the ability to think as your think.
Give to me knowledge about your ways so your ways will be my ways.
If it be your will, take my earthly thoughts and sail my thoughts into the

Because of you, I shall live out my days in joy.
Even when darkness comes to take me down and take my life, I shall have
joy for I know you are nearby and you will never forsake me.
Peace everlasting you have given me and peace everlasting I shall embrace.

the trees of the field clap their hands in joy in your presence, someday
soon I too will burst out in song and clap my hands as we get to see each

All these things I humbly pray in the name of my most Blessed Lord Jesus
Christ, my Mighty God, and my Ever-present Holy Spirit upon whom I can
