Wednesday Riff: Lead Us

Lead us not into temptation

Keep us from false guilt and the burden of self-loathing
Lead us not into temptation
Save us from pride, arrogance, and the quick-witted judging of others
Lead us not into temptation
Take us away from the notion that we have all the answers
Lead us not into temptation
Open our eyes to the world as you see it
Lead us not into temptation
Soften our hearts where they harden on a daily basis
Lead us not into temptation
Steer us away from unnecessary argument and snappy put downs
Lead us not into temptation
Guide us away from the places of arrogance and lack of respect
Lead us not into temptation
Into a place of truth, compassion and grace
Lead us not into temptation
Take us with you Jesus, where you’ll walk today.

Lead Us

    These riffs are powerful and poetic, either to read alone or I can imagine them fitting well into morning prayers…
