    I kneel to pray

    to start my day

    In the right way

    I immediately acknowledge my dependence

    For I know that in God is my true independence

    I see others trying to do it in their own might

    But I know through God my life is made right

    So Father I ask that you come in and take control

    Help me to live a life that is upright and bold

    Please father build me on my leaning side

    Help me to excel without too much pride

    Father I ask that you do what only a God can do

    And that is on today make me completely anew

    Forgive me of all my past transgressions

    And help me to stay away from new agressions

    I know that my strive for perfection is never complete

    So father I ask you to daily give me the desire to compete

    And with my last breath I will to continue to offer you your due

    For I know that there would be no me if there were no you

    Amen
