Lent Prayers: William Cowper – help me to worship only thee

The following stanza from William Cowper’s hymn “O for a Closer Walk with God” makes a great Lenten prayer – may the Lord help us to examine our hearts for any idols today and grant us grace and strength to tear them from the throne.

The dearest idol I have known,
Whatever that idol be,
Help me to tear it from thy throne,
and worship only thee…

William Cowper, “O For a Closer Walk with God”
