Prayer for Pilgrims

Father in Heaven,
Mould me into Christlikeness;
And Stir up in me,
the Fire of Your Love.

Holy Spirit,
Fill me with Your Power;
And Help me to Tell of the Love
And Salvation in Jesus of Nazareth.

Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of the Father,
Renew my Friendship in You;
And help me to Serve You
With a Quiet Mind
and a Burning Spirit.

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Please Keep Me
In the Joy, Simplicity,and Compassion
Of Your Holy Gospel. Amen
