Raise Me Up Again and Again

Here I am, Lord.
So inadequate.
I try to give
and yet I am wrapped up in the desire to please myself.

Still, every good thing speaks of You.
I need You.
I need Your Mercy.
Open my heart to trust in Your Divine Mercy.

In front of my life,
my real life,
I discover that I cannot "do it" all by myself.
I need to pray,
I need You to sustain me,
I need You to raise me up again and again.

Have mercy on me.
Make me an instrument of Your Mercy.
Give me complete trust in You.
Jesus I trust in You.
