Prayers for the Parched: The Better Way

God knows all the paths of life as He leads us

The Better Way

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.  “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”  Isaiah 55:8-9

O Lord,

Thou knowest what is the better way

Let this or that be done as thou shalt please

Give what thou wilt

and how much thou wilt

and when thou wilt

Deal with me in all things as thou wilt

I am in thy hand

Turn me round and turn me back again even as a wheel

Behold I am thy servant

prepared for all things

For I desire not to live  unto myself

but unto thee

And, oh that I could do it worthy and perfectly!


A Thomas A. Kempis Prayer
