Dear God, take me. Lead me by the nose through the day. I am an obstinate mule. I need reminding, and a firm hand.
Take me to the field where my labor lies. Set me to my task. My work will bear fruit, and I may never see nor notice, too busy digging up each furrow. I am too simple to see the bounty you are producing with my labor.
Bring me home at day’s end. I know you will care for me as one of your own. But, stubborn and willful, I escape and wander if any opportunity presents itself.
Lord, be firm with me today. Leave no room for doubt. Order my life.
Thy will be done.
