[Written for the Sentinel]

A Prayer of Petition

O Father-Mother God , teach me Thy will

And on my waiting sense now send a gleam

Of healing truth, to break the restless dream

Of mortal life. Thy law in me fulfill.

Let me all selfishness resign,—until

The glory of thy meekness sheds its beam

Along my path; and, should I fearful seem,

Grant me more love, all fear and sin to kill.

Bless me with treasure from Thine ample store

Of good for all Thy children everywhere.

May I rich fruitage in Thy service find,

And high above the mists of error soar,

Gaining the vision of my answered prayer,

In thoughts love-laden, and in actions kind.
