A Prayer On the Shore


Quench my thirst, Living Water.

Help me trust you God, when I doubt.

Remind me of your faithfulness.

Enable me to be your vessel of healing.

Advise me with Your Holy Spirit.

Ease my anxiety when I feel can’t make it.

Give me faith when I am fearful.

Attend to me when I am downcast.

Lend me Your ear when I cry.

Enjoy my praise when I sing to you.

Wind and waves obey you.

Hear me when I talk with you.

Send your angel armies when I feel defeated.


Smile when I return to you.

Heal my loved ones when I plead.

Accept my thanks for your sacrifice.

Forgive me when I fail.

Release everything that needs to be relinquished.

Laugh with me when I’m elated.

Comfort me when I mourn.

Convict me when I need to forgive.

Reveal things I need to see.

Guide me with your right hand for decisions.

Direct my mind and words to follow Your will.

Protect me from evil I need to rebuke.

Rejoice over me with singing.

Hold me when I’m lonely.

Fill me with a sound mind.

Make my crooked places straight.

Give contentment in the desert place.

Teach me to be compassionate.

Assist me to proclaim Your mighty works.

Fill me with love at all times.

Streams of abundance flow.
