I Pray You Fail

I pray that you fail completely
I pray that you utterly fall
That way you will have to look upwards
Only then will you hear the Lord call

But if you proceed on your strength
If you succeed on your own
You will never look upward to heaven
You will think you did it alone

But God gives you grace to surrender
He gives grace by the troubles you see
He wants your heart to be tender
He wants you to bend down on your knee

So if it takes failure to break you
If it takes trials of pain
Let God use it so He can remake you
To never on self depend again

Ps 34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

Jas 1:2  All joy count it, my brethren, when ye may fall into temptations manifold;

Jas 1:3 knowing that the proof of your faith doth work endurance,

Jas 1:4 and let the endurance have a perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire–in nothing lacking;
