Pause for Prayer

Heal my rough edges, Lord:
my self-centered snarl,
my hair-trigger growl,
my defenses aprowl
protecting my way of seeing things,
my way of doing whatever's next to be done...

With your Spirit's power,
tame my temper
and temper my rash response...

Let your Spirit stand as a guard at my lips,
the gatekeeper at the door of my heart,
keeping watch
on my words and my ways...

With your Spirit's patience, Lord,
grace my soul:
tame me, heal me, shape and mold me
to be the person
you created me to be...
