Each afternoon at three o'clock, I kneel beside my bed,
And empty all the muddled thoughts that clutter up my head;
I set my mind on Jesus & I bless His Holy Name,
And if the day has all gone wrong, I praise Him just the same.
I list each thing that troubles me & name them off in prayer;
I give them all to Jesus & I trust them to His care;
I thank Him for the good things & I list them one-by-one;
My heart's a great deal lighter when my praying-time is done.
I ask the Lord to guide my life, to give my steps direction;
I thank him for His thoughts of me & hour-by-hour protection;
In confidence, I ask for gifts that only come from Him,
And dwell upon His mighty pow'r until my problems dim.
I pray for friends, for needs, for wants, & for His perfect will,
And then I wait upon the Lord & make my mind be still;
I listen for that still, small voice to speak to me, & then
I pray with peace & gratitude: "In Jesus Name, Amen."
