    Dear Lord I pray to you each day
    to give me strength to keep myway.
    And give me faith to walk the straight
    and be the one who you designed.
    You know my soul, you know my mind.
    Now I pray for my soul desire.
    Give me love that I require.
    Since I was born you kept me safe,
    all my pain and fear from failure
    and struggle you did erase.
    When you blessed me with a love so kind, a love
    that filled me with such peace.
    And led me to this passions feast.
    Father this love I pray you bless, with love and
    peace and hapiness, to give us patience and
    compassion so each others soul we do not
    refashion. Help me lord to walk by his side,
    and keep at bay my "Strong black woman pride"
    that manipulates or castarates and will not
    let her man , be a man. And lord I pray you give
    him peace, so that he will face each day with
    joy, increase his wealth, protect his health
    if it be your will, and if
    it's not teach him "Peace Be Still". As we walk
    this path of wedded bliss, each day I pray we
    start with a kiss. And end it just the same ole
    way to bless our love both night and day.
    May weary, contrary ways stay out and doubt
    and jealousy never come about. Bless us with
    faith in each other as we have faith in thee.
    Teach him to love, as you love me.
    Help him to love me as I am, and me to do the
    same.
    Bless this man who gave me his name.
    And when time comes to and end...take
    me one day before...so I don't know one day
    more with out my lover and my friend.
    AMEN

    "love finds you when you least expect it"..it's a cliche, but I think it's true....
