Life at St George the Martyr
Give thanks to the Lord, who is my guide;
you Lord, who shows me the path to righteousness;
you, who helps me to discern your Word;
whose Spirit empowers me!
Give me drive and determination in troubled times.
For in times of trouble, I stumble and lose heart,
Yet you are beside me –
You take away the stumbling block
and strike down the barriers that keep me from your love.
I give thanks that you seek to stay my hand when I act rashly;
that you seek to give me patience in my anger;
that, in my weakness; in my humanity,
you still show me the Spirit of your love.
I give thanks to the Lord,
that you hear me in my rejoicing;
yet you seek me out when my burden is heavy
and lift me up
As I cry out in the wilderness,
you trouble yourself when I am in anguish –
for your love knows no bounds.
Teach me, guide me, and fill me with that same love,
that, in all my unworthiness,
I may still know your care and support;
and that I may know that I am a child of God.
‘My Psalm’ is written by Jane Mogford, Verger and member of St George the Martyr.
