O Sovereign Lord of Heaven and Earth: A Prayer


O Sovereign Lord of heaven and earth,

before your awesome throne I stand

your holiness is so bright,

all my sins are brought to light.

 

 

I stand and stare and see the Lamb for sinners slain,

I see his love and yet his pain,

he died for me and poured out his love

and poured on me the Spirit’s rain.

 

 

My heart is weak, my vision small,

my love has dwindled, how can this be?

I know he loves me, yet I know I need more

of His Spirit and his grace.

 

 

I will seek his face again,

and talk to him about my pain,

I seem to fail and fail again,

I want to glory in his name.

 

 

I want to teach his word

and be obedient to his call,

I need the power, the gifts

and the vision that comes from the throne

 

 

I have been called to build his Church,

O Father show me what you want done,

Renew my passion, strengthen my will

to run the race for your glory.

 

 

Guide me O God,

fill me afresh with your Spirit’s power

make me a vessel of your grace

to proclaim your name to every race.

 

 

O Sovereign Lord of heaven and earth,

I seek your face so that by your grace

I may become like you, full of holy love

Show me your way,speak of your love

 

 

I need your power to meet this hour,

I need the love of Christ to reign in me

I need to feel the Father’s embrace

Come Holy One and show your power.

David Rollings was born in Luton in1949 and raised by my Christian parents in the Gospel Standard Strict Baptist denomination( Hyper-Calvinistic} in the sixties I rebelled against this background and got involved in left-wing politics. I became a Christian in 1969 and soon started reading Francis Schaeffer's books and came to embrace a Christian Worldview. I had the privilege of being on the staff of L'Abti Fellowship from1975 - 1979. After L'abri I studied at London School of Theology where I gained my BA.(1983) A few years later I studied for my MA by distance learning with The Nazarene Theological College Manchester (1999) For the last 22 years, I have been an elder of Shoreham-by-Sea Baptist Church.
