My Prayer

In the still of morning,

I can hear my spirit quake,

Under the pressures placed upon me.

The weight of which is great.


I reach out to you,

Seeking your face.

My hair continues to fall,

As a rash spreads over my face.

Father God, please hear my voice

I need your saving grace.


I begin to tremble.

As I walk to my favorite chair,

There is where I sit and pray,

Hoping to hear your voice today.

There is where I expose all my cares,

While giving You thanks and praise.


Father God, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy Kingdom Come,

Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven…


I Thank God,

For breathing life into the lifeless,

Giving strength to the weak,

Instilling courage in the fearful,

And empowering to the meek.


I continue to tremble as I pray,

Giving thought to the needs of THIS day.

Please God, help me not to feel this way.

This is the reason I’ve come to you to today.


Please forgive me for what I am about to say,

But my heart grows heavier with each day,

As I seek refuge from the storm,

Of things thought to be long gone,

Past transgressions, pain, and long sufferings.

The only things I have as an offering.


In Jesus’ name, I give thanks to You,

For all that has been given,

Though it seems that some of what has been given,

Is in grave danger of ending.

I hold on to hope as one door is closing,

That another shall open graciously exposing,

A new day.


I know you’ve been with me,

You’ve never left my side.

Even when I turned my back to you,

Declaring that I wanted to die.

You would not let me die.


You promised that you’d take care of me.

In this I truly believe,

But Father God how much must I take?

How long will my heart have to bleed?


So I sit here before You,

I cannot hide,

Asking your forgiveness,

And shedding all pride.

I’m still learning to trust you,

I do not deny,

But, I grow ever more weary,

Teary eyed and tired.


I watch that which has been given,

Fading away.

I’m powerless to do anything without your say.

Please Father God, I need you today!

Not just today…but everyday.


Then I lift my eyes to heaven,

Thanking God again for this day.

Acknowledging His goodness,

In every possible way.


Just when I think that I’ve said all I can say,

A few more words start to gave way,

Thanking God again and again for everything given,

The great, the small, the house that we live in.


I Thank you Father God,

Giver of love, mercy and grace.

I Thank you Father,

For the smile on my face.

For being able to watch my son grow up,

For being his mom and loving him so much.


I am grateful for all that is coming,

peace, joy, prosperity, even long suffering.

I am grateful,

For all that has made me humble.

For you teaching me patience,

And catching me when I stumble.


I come filled with thanksgiving for many things.

Things that I have…Things that I hope for…Things yet to be.

I thank you for almost all that I see.

I thank you Father God for living and loving,

Even for showing me how to repair the oven.
