Encompass me with Your love and mercy, gracious Lord;
I have no security except in You.
I am perpetually exposed to the destructive forces of this existence.
I am in constant danger of losing the battle to
the very passions and desires of my own nature.
I can only submit myself to You
And believe that You will fulfill Your purposes in me.
Your love, O God, is steadfast;
Your grace is everlasting.
Even when I am beaten down by depression
And ensnared by my weaknesses and frailties
And my own lust threatens to devour me,
You are my God, and You will not let me go.
I am determined to serve You, O Lord.
May my life be a continual thank-offering to You,
I shall sing Your praises forever.
(Paraphrase on Psalm 57 by Leslie Brandt)
I give thanks to You, living and everlasting King,
for you have returned my soul to me with compassion.
Great is your faithfulness.
“I use all of my experiences and knowledge to benefit my Life and others.”
