    Father before I make any request
    I thank you for all that has come before
    For you have been better then I deserve
    You continue to keep me upright and standing
    Time after time making a way out of no way
    In the palm of your hand I stand better than bless
    On this day Father my first request is have your way
    Lord Guide my footsteps in your appointed pathway
    Help me to remain steadfast and focus on today
    Father, my goal is to please you and not man
    So help me to keep my eyes heavenwardly
    And not worry about their opinions or decisons
    For none but you have a heaven or hell to put me in
    Before this day even starts I know there will be tests
    So I am asking you to build me up on my weak side
    So I am able to excel at all that shall come my way
    If for a moment I begin to stray lead me back to You
    For this year I promise to be exactly what you call me to be
    No more or no less for I have learned you know whats best
    No longer will I constantly try to do it my own way
    For years I've tried my way and I realize it doesn't work
    So on this year I dedicate myself to doing it the right way
    On my own I am not capable, it's in you that I am able
    Also Lord help me to realize no matter what comes today
    That it is all working for my good no matter how it looks
    For all thing works for the good of them that love the Lord
    Lastly in this time of declared recession remind me who you are
    For you are a mighty God, and you are not in recession
    So you able to meet all my needs exceeding and abundantly
    And in the precious name of my Lord & Saviour, Jesus I pray.
    AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!

    When I saw the title, I thought, wow, another Morning Prayer, preparing myself for the read. Just like the first one, I was agreeing with each line...these lines in particular:
    No matter how bleak, I must remember that situations that are in the works, hardly ever look as good as the completed version. Thank you for this write poetess.
