My heart is heavy, Lord, heavy with longing.
Longing for purpose, Lord, in Your broken world.
I am like a boat set loose from its moorings, drifting aimlessly,
Tossed to and fro at the whim of the waves and winds.
Let your breath fill my sails, Lord, let your hands take the tiller.
Steer me in your right direction, Lord, with a destination of your choosing.
Let my voyage be meaningful and worthy in your eyes.
I listen for your voice, I call out for your presence.
I pray to learn your plan for me.
But only silence fills my ears,
And only sadness sits on my heart.
I know you can hear me, Lord.
I know you can see my distress.
You who are all powerful, all knowing, all loving,
Renew my hope. Strengthen my faith.
You who answered the prayers of your people
Time and time again,
Grant this humble servant her request---
Give me a purpose, Lord.
Please, just give me a purpose.
