A prayer for guidance

by John (Churchdown, Gloucester, UK)

Teach me, O Lord, your will to know,

that I might see each day,
a light to shine upon the path
and clearly point my way;
that I might know just what to do
and what to leave undone,
and follow in your steps alone
from dawn ’til set of sun.

(This was a prayer my dad wrote in my confirmation book
about 75 years ago.)
