Jesus, Help Me to Be More Like YOU!

Jesus, Help Me to be Like YOU!


Jesus, please forgive the sins I committed.

They need to be forgiven and omitted.


My life needs to be cleansed inside out.

This is what being your child is all about.


Please search my heart and test my ways.

May I be honored in giving you praise!


Please touch my mind and purify my thoughts.

Your salvation for my life,

is what you’ve brought!


Touch my eyes that I may look

 at honored things.

And not reap what a lustful

 heart will bring.


Help me to be the kind

of example I need to be.

I need much more of you, and less of me!


I need your touch and your hand extended.

I need this wicked heart of mine amended!


Thank you my Lord for answering my prayer.

Thanks for all you’ve done and being there!


You’re the one that I’ve always needed!

By your mercy and grace,

I’m now completed!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
