Jesus, Help Me to Obey You!

Jesus, Help Me to Obey You!


Jesus, help me to trust you and obey!

May you be honored in what I do and say!


May you be glorified in my life and words!

In my heart, may a passion for you be heard.


I pray that there would be an expression.

That godliness would be a daily lesson.


May I take the time to express

 how I love you!

Help me to go things that

 won’t disappoint you.


In you alone, I‘ve found

 an eternal treasure!

The love you’ve given, I cannot measure.


Thank you my Lord for listening

 to my prayer.

Thanks for listening

 and for being there!


You’re the one who gives life everlasting.

And have given more than

what I’m asking.


Obeying you my Lord, is a blessing to know.

You’ve blessed and made me whole!

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!
