Your Will be Done


When often I don’t know how to pray,
What to ask or what to say,
Never does it fail me to begin,
To pray the prayer Jesus taught back when…
“Our Father who are in Heaven,
Hallowed be Your name, 
Your kingdom come,  Your will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven—”
“His-will-be-done-on-earth-as-it-is-in-Heaven. ”
How quickly must His will occur in His presence?
Should it be any slower in my heart where He has residence?
Why do I pray my prayers, speak my piece,
If I’m truly seeking my own will to never cease?
When I expect God to answer my prayer,  my way?
When I think I’ve figured out what I need to say?
When praying in the Spirit has ceased to be,
Because I know best and surely God sees?
So I stick it on at the very end of things,
When “Your will be done” has a hollow ring?
Abba Father, help me to seek Your will first,
So my prayers aren’t dying of thirst.
Then no matter the prayer or what I seek,
In with God’s will my own is in sync.
And so much more can be accomplished through prayer,
And how much more can I show I care?
When I seek to pray for His will to be,
Setting aside the will of me?
