For those of this ilk, please send all the energy waves you can toward Heaven and/or my father, Richard, on Thursday, as he undergoes surgery for lymphoma. I am personally praying for a strong heart and faith (for him) and for steady hands (for the surgeon).
Pierce my ear, O Lord, my God.
Take me to Your door this day.
I will serve no other god.
For You have paid the price for me.
With Your blood You ransomed me.
I will serve You eternally.
A free man I’ll never be.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Most High God, who didst empty thyself and give they whole life to us, even unto death, the death of the Cross: Grant us to receive so immeasurable a gift penitently, gladly and thankfully; and to hold back nought of ourselves from others and from thee; who livest and reignest in the glory of the eternal Trinity, God for ever and ever.
