A Prayer Befitting a Disciple

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

"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me"  (Isaiah 6:8).
