Prayer for spiritual revival

Posted by Anne Witton on Thursday, July 17, 2014 Under: Prayer

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves, 
When our dreams have come true 
Because we have dreamed too little, 
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when 
With the abundance of things we possess 
We have lost our thirst 
For the waters of life; 
Having fallen in love with life, 
We have ceased to dream of eternity 
And in our efforts to build a new earth, 
We have allowed our vision 
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, 
To venture on wider seas 
Where storms will show your mastery; 
Where losing sight of land, 
We shall find the stars.

We ask You to push back 
The horizons of our hopes; 
And to push into the future 
In strength, courage, hope, and love.

-- Sir Francis Drake (1540 - 1596)
