Deliver Us From A Lazy Mind – John Wesley

Lord God,

Deliver us
From a lazy mind,
From a lukewarm heart,
And an unwilling spirit,
Which deaden our love for you.

Give us a passionate, alive and joyful spirit,
To boldly do whatever you command,
To suffer whatever you call us to,
To be eager to serve your holy love
In all things.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

– John Wesley (1703-1791)
