Jesus, The Leader of My Life

Jesus, teach me how to follow you
May I follow your example in all that I do
I want you to be the leader of my life
You lead me to joy, not boredom or strife

Jesus, I want you to be the mentor I turn to first
Fill me with your Spirit so I feel I could burst
Teach me your ways, give me your words
Guide my steps, so I can soar like a bird

Lord, teach me to be your faithful disciple
Learning from you as I read the Bible
Responding to your Spirit’s nudges throughout my day
As you teach me to listen, and serve and obey

When I want to deny you or disobey
Hold me close to your heart and teach me to pray
Looking to you for everything I need
As you correct and challenge and I become free

Thank you, Lord, that you always lead with grace
That I see love and mercy flowing from your face
Help me to lead with compassion and tender care
Knowing your guidance and strength are always there

Lord, teach me how to lead and mentor others
To encourage and coach a sister or brother
Direct my life in loving service to you
As I live for your glory in everything I do
