    Dear God on bended knee I come to you
    Knowing that this prayer is long overdue
    But before I make any requests of thee
    I must thank you for the blessings afforded me

    Thank you for allowing me to rise this morning
    For some lost their lives prior to this morning.
    I bless God for the food I shall receive this day.
    For many families continue to go hungry today
    God, I appreciate your provision and protection.
    For without you I would be lost without direction
    I even Thank you for the correction you give me
    For you, God, chasten them that are loved by thee

    So often we become so preoccupied with our daily affairs
    Forgetting how we made it from way back there to here
    often forgetting how we become who we are today
    But I must stop and take a moment on this day
    To acknowlege I'd be nothing if There was no you

    I know that no matter what I am going through today
    Or whatever situation or dilemma that comes my way
    Whatever storm that comes to make me sway or fret
    Or Whatever love one's life is filled with an trial or upset
    You are more than enough for all this very day shall hold
    And that you, God, will take care of all that shall unfold
    I've come to understand that if you, God did it before,
    You are able to do it over again, a million times more

    As I close out this prayer...
    Father, help me appreciate all that You are doing for me
    And that My life is an original masterpiece created by thee
    I Thank you God for take time to invest in a wretch like me.
    For without you God I don't know where or what i would be
    Father, help me trust You when things seem impossible.
    For I know that with You all things are more than possible.
    Lastly, Father, help me live a life that pleases You in every way
    For my desire is to live up to all you have invested in me on today

    AMEN, AMEN, AMEN
