Fasting Prayer

In our third week of fasting
We come to your throne
Lay down our petitions
And give up our “own”
In search of the answers
Direction and course
Acknowledging you
As being our source
But you who began
A good work in us
Must be our support
And hold fast our trust
When Satan desires
To sift us as wheat
Be thou our confidence
Securing our feet
Be our defender
Our sword and our shield
Be strength in our weakness
As to you we yield
