Lord, I want to be a Christian in my heart…
Lord, I want to be more loving in my heart…
Lord, I want to be more holy in my heart…
Lord, I want to be like Jesus in my heart…
— Traditional African American Spiritual
Holy and strong One,
Give us strength
To do what you would have us do.
Deliver us from lack of purpose,
Free us from confusion of mind,
Save us from loss of integrity,
Maintain in us vision and ideals,
Sustain our openness and generosity.
Help us to continue to work for you
That we may serve you all our days,
Holy and strong One.
