Be A Contender ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Lord, let me be a contender,
a competitor in the race
so I may be a testament
of Your life-saving grace.

Help me to finish well,
so the prize I can earn
by guiding me around
each bend, every turn.

Let me be a front-runner,
to living a life sinless
so I may be for You
everyday a witness.

If You should ever see me,
fall off the narrow track
I pray You will quickly
guide me to You back.

Lord, let me be a contender,
one who runs with dignity
let me be a champion
of love and charity!


Jude 1:3

Beloved, when I gave all diligence
to write unto you of the common
salvation, it was needful for me to
write unto you, and exhort you that
ye should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered
unto the saints.

King James Version
