    I asked the Lord to take contol
    I asked the Lord to please help me
    Cause I am dying
    I know I shouldn't just call on Him because I am in trouble
    I should call on Him everyday just to say thank you
    Thank you for the trials and tribulations
    Thank you for the hurt and pain
    Thank you for my joys and sorrows
    Thank you for the ability to get up in the morning and lie down at night
    Thank you for the gift of life
    Just plain Thank You Lord
    You don't have to answer Lord
    Cause I know I shouldn't just call You because I am in trouble
    Cause I am dying
    I should kneel down and pray
    Pray because you have given me life
    Pray because it will get me through the day
    Pray because prayer changes things
    Pray because it will strenghten your mind, body and soul
    Pray because the family that prays together stays together
    Just pray and surrender myself and my life to you Lord
    You don't have to answer Lord
    Cause I know I shouldn't just call you and pray because I am in trouble
    Cause I am dying
    Dying from the hurt and pain
    Dying cause I just don't understand
    Dying because I'm worn, torn and tattered
    Dying cause the doctor says so
    Dying cause I haven't surrendered my mind, body and soul to you Lord
    Dying cause I just can no longer stand
    I asked the Lord to take control
    I asked the Lord to please help me
    The Lord said my child take my hand
    Surrender and follow me
    Cause your life is already planned

    For those who may wonder
    I am dying spiritually and mentally not physically.
    But I still will follow him

    this was poignant and moving
    psalm written from the soul
    the words in this piece can't
    help but to awaken its reader....

    Very inspirational work!
    Great job!

    Often we question our faith, but when times are hard, we believe. I know what you're saying here, reminding self that the time to pray shouldn't only be when things are going wrong. Keep flowing, I hear ya.
