Prince of peace and Lord of life,
You are my King and my Father.
Thank You for the freedom You have given us
through Jesus Christ
to boldly approach Your throne of grace
for help in time of need.
Oh Father, we have need every hour
and so we draw near to You for true help.
We forsake all other help
and turn toward You.
Make us wholehearted servants of Your Name,
that nothing would hold us back from You.
Search our hearts and minds;
sift through our inner being
so that Your glory might shine through us.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
All this we ask through our Lord and Savior,
