    This is to you, my Lord and Divine Heavenly Father
    I guess you can call this my prayer.
    There are many things I’ve seen, places I’ve been
    and each moment I know you have been there.

    I am grateful for your blessings, as you are a ‘God of Love’
    Because of the gift of ‘LIFE for all’ you’ve shared.
    I thank you for your instructions, here in your Divine Book
    you left it with us to learn because you care

    Such wonderful things you‘ve planned, for my future as a man
    the Book was provided so I’ll be prepared
    At times I may stumble from your decisive righteous words
    With genuine remorse, you’ll see that I am spared.

    That is why all the glory goes to you, as I now let you know
    It is my endeavor each day to get it right
    I’ve tried so I know for certain; I cannot make it without you
    I need you as an intricate part of my life.

    So I pray for you for compassion; I am praying for your mercy…
    for your enlightenment, wisdom and your insight.
    I’m going to lean on you, with faith you’ll give me direction
    be my guide and my strength through my plight.

    You are absolutely the supreme, the creator of all things
    The is no uncertainty of your power, your might.
    So I obey you with confidence, and confide with conviction
    As forever, you will be the sovereign and the light

    Amen

    This prayer was so emotively written, and so true. I felt this deeply.
