to what You want for us.
How easy it is to get off track
without meaning to or knowing
our wandering went all wrong!
Forgive us for thinking unkindly
toward ourselves or Your anointed
when a pastor, parent, or peoples
You’ve appointed for caring service
need our partnership and prayers.
Help us to praise You, Lord,
with our full attention, live loyally
in Your intention, and forgive,
