Lord, Give Me Faith

Lord, give me the faith of Abel
Whose sacrifice to You
Was born out of obedience
To Thy word of truth.

Lord, give me the faith of Enoch
Who walked with You each day
Ever drawing closer
Till Thy Love swept Him away
Into Thy heart of Truth~
He never died, You took Him home
To always be with You.

Lord give me the faith of Sarah
Who trusted and believed
The promise that you gave to her;
Thy promise she received.

Lord give me the faith of Abraham
Who waited many years
For the promise that You gave,
By faith he persevered.

He waited and he trusted
Though he saw no sign
That what You said would be fulfilled
In Your own way and time.

Lord give me the faith of Noah,
Who trusted and obeyed
Thy word to him to build an ark
Though he saw no sign of rain.

"Build Me an ark, “ said God,
~Noah saw no reason why~
Yet He patiently worked and built God’s boat
While hundreds of years went by.

"This world will end, dear Noah,
This ark you build will save
You and all I give to you,
Just do all that I say."
Lord give me the faith of Moses
Who faithful to You stayed;
Through every trial and temptation
He willingly obeyed.

You sent him to the Pharaoh
"Let my people go!"
And every time you sent him there,
The Pharaoh shouted, "No!"

He asked and sought and knocked,
Yet every door was closed,
But Thy will prevailed for him~
One day the king said, "Go!"

Lord give me the faith that lasts
To all eternity
That never doubts Thy promises
Will always come to be.
In Jesus' name, Amen.
“But joyful are those...whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them.
He keeps every promise forever.” ~Psalm 146:5-6 (NLT)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us with such immeasurable love and for believing in us so much that You entrust us with beautiful dreams that we could never hope or imagine could ever be fulfilled except by faith in Your strength and power and ability to help us accomplish them. 
For You are to be honored and glorified in each of us 
by our lives on this earth in all that we do,
 and when we accomplish what would 
seem impossible in our own strength,
 all glory and honor goes to You, our awesome Creator. 
We love You, Lord and thank You 
for keeping every promise forever. 
In Jesus' name, Amen.
