This hymn, by Kate Wilkinson, is a simple prayer that leaves Jabez in the dust (where it belongs, quite frankly). Pray, or, better yet, sing it before you begin your work today.
May the mind of Christ my Savior live in me from day to day, by His love and pow’r controlling all I do and say. May the word of God dwell richly in my heart from hour to hour, so that all may see I triumph only through His power. May the peace of God my Father rule my life in everything, that I may be calm to comfort sick and sorrowing. May the love of Jesus fill me as the waters fill the sea. Him exalting, self abasing—this is victory. May I run the race before me, strong and brave to face the foe, looking only unto Jesus as I onward go. May His beauty rest upon me as I seek the lost to win, and may they forget the channel, seeing only Him.
