New Eyes

Heavenly Father, give me new eyes.
The ones I have focus inward
looking back at me.
But I want eyes that focus outward,
past my own little world.  

Dear Lord, I ask for new eyes
to see the lost and hurting,
 and those who need a Savior.
Eyes that notice the ones that need 
a soft touch or a gentle smile. 

Oh God, I need new eyes.
I want to look at the sun 
and be reminded of your Son.
I want to look at the grass blowing in the wind
and think of your Spirit moving.
I want to look at the magnificent
trees with their many branches
and think of your strong arms
gently holding me.


Heavenly Father, give me new eyes.
Eyes that look beyond the pain to see the Healer.
Eyes that look beyond the need to see the Provider.
Eyes that look beyond the chaos 
to see the One who holds it all in order.
Eyes that see past the creation to the Creator.

I want new eyes.

Many blessings,

  1. I want new eyes too! I want to see what God wants me to see. To minister to the hurting. To step outside of my box and be His hands and feet!
