Oh! for a heart that is burdened! Infused with a passion to pray;
Oh! for a stirring within me; Oh! for His power every day.
Oh! for a heart like My Savior, Who, being in agony prayed.
Such caring for others, Lord, give me; On my heart let burdens be laid.
My father, I long for this passion, to pour myself out for the lost-
To lay down my life to save others-"to pray" whatever the cost.
Lord, teach me, Oh teach me this secret, I'm hungry this lesson to learn,
This passionate passion for others, for this, blessed Jesus, I yearn.
Father, this lesson I long for from Thee-Oh, let Thy Spirit reveal this to me.
–Mary Warburton Booth
