    Dear Father,
    First I acknowledge that you have been better to me
    Than I ever deserve for anyone to possible be
    I take time to thank you right now for the past
    And give praise for the blessings of yesterday
    And I ask for you guidance as I embark upon today
    I acknowledge that I can not do this on my own
    So please guide my footsteeps in all that I do
    I realize that you know all before it even happens
    So please prepare me for all that this day shall contain
    So many times I can not comprehend the 'why' of it all
    But Father I trust you even when I don't understand
    I am sure that I will encounter all kinds of people today
    Some will be quite friendly and others not so cordial
    I pray that you touched them all and have your way
    But Lord if it is not their season to change
    Please Father I ask you to Change me
    Help me to reflect you at all times
    Please walk with you hand about my shoulder
    So you can quickly cover my mouth if neccesary
    Give me the words to say in every situation
    And help my mind to stay focused on you
    For I want to represent you well in all that I do
    I understand that I am still a work in progress
    And that you are not through with me yet
    So Lastly Father reign me in if I stray on today
    Amen

    How did I let this piece pass me? smh
    I remember reading it and feeling speechless and I think thats what good writing does to you
    It replaces your voice and speaks for you
    This did that for me and my spirit was better for it :grouphug:
