Thank you, Father, for the Bible
for it teaches us the way
to remain in union with you,
and to turn to you and pray.
Thank you, Father, for your Son
interceding at your side
for the saints that they may always
in the Christ, the Vine, abide.
Thank you, Father, for your Spirit
interceding in our hearts,
teaching, striving, urging always
as he prayerful words imparts.
So may we with humble hearts
pray for those who are in need,
for your Spirit will interpret
our attempts to intercede.
