Just for today, Lord, don’t let me look back.
Guide and direct me on to the right track.
Free me from demons, temptations and slips
From wilful indiscipline of a drama that grips
My thoughts and attention and leads me astray
To the depths of addiction each step of the way
To darkness and sorrow, avarice and grief
Self inflicted destruction,under guise of relief
And just for today, Lord, let me not look ahead
In case I get scared of the future or dread
That addiction may never depart or fade
Or least I forget ’twas for You, I was made
And not for a life of Slavery or Death
But for Joy, Love and Peace
Truth, Hope, Faith and Mirth.
So let me look up, Lord on this bright new day
To see Your Face and embrace Your Holy Way
I make this my prayer, Lord
Unite my will with Yours
Protect and defend me when temptation lures.
Hear my prayer, Lord
Come what may
Safeguard and heal me
JUST FOR TODAY.
You know the addiction will never depart
But it’s ok. you know in your heart
You can avoid the peril that lurks
Just get yourself back to what you know works!
A really lovely prayer Vera
Really lovely prayer Vera. Ty.
