A Prayer for Today

There have been times when I have found it difficult to focus on the next step ... over the years this poem has been a helpful prayer in clarifying my thought.
by Marceline F. Jones
What is Thy will for me, Father, to-day?
What shall I do for Thee? What think? What say?
... Thine is my life, my wish, my will;
... Use me to-day, and Thy purpose fulfill.
Guiding the stars through the heavens' great span,
Guide Thou my life through Thy infinite plan.
... There is a place, a work, for me,
... Loving, rejoicing, and living for Thee.
