The Grace to Stay Faithful

Lord, I'm sorry that I hurt You,
I'm sorry for going astray:
Please help me to stay focused
And to never turn away.

My mind sometimes wanders
To things that do distract,
To thoughts, I shouldn't think of,
For I'm weak, and that's a fact.

But I ask You for the grace Lord
To live my life this day;
That I'll stay faithful and fruitful,
In Jesus' Name, I pray!

If you know Jesus and love talking to Him in prayer, you have probably experienced yourself sometimes drift away in your thoughts in the midst of a prayer.  I have experienced that often.  On one such occasion, while I was in prayer, talking to Jesus, my mind began to wander off on a train of thought,  down some dark alley of the past, when I suddenly felt the gentle nudge of God's Holy Spirit prompting me to come back. The nudge was in fact so gentle that I could have missed it. I'm so glad I didn't. I at once repented of my wandering and wrote this prayer poem.
