I seek your favor, God
But not for my own today.
Others are in need of your power,
It’s for them I come to pray.
As I ask these things I bring to you,
I pray most that they will surely see:
Upon the answers of my prayers,
They see your work, done miraculously.
Friends adding to their family,
Provide health and means to grow,
With loving all around them,
Letting their joy overflow.
Travelers have need of your mercy,
Protecting them from danger or harm.
Give them safe passage and return,
Giving thanks to you when they come home.
So many sick and hurting,
Give them healing, or at least peace
Do so in such a way, God
Their praise of you will never cease.
And those battling habits of harm,
hurting themselves and those near,
block their path to destruction,
bringing them out of such despair.
To those who’ve been broken hearted,
Dreams dashed or from love gone bad;
Show them tender mercies and love in such,
they turn to you, no greater love to be had.
Homelessness is rampant,
Jobs and careers are being sought,
Civic unrest, hunger abounds,
Selfishness and pride being wrought.
From the dominion of darkness they reside
Rescue them from the bonds that bind,
Let them praise you for you goodness,
Wonderful works of yours they find.
