My Prayer


Dear God (all praises to you);

I am probably not worthy of even approaching you in prayer. My life is probably not the life that is best suited to the path you’ve set and You know better than I, the many travesties I’ve made through the years that ran counter to what You desire. I am nothing compared to others who are more deserving of your love…

But something compels me to draw to You in prayer. 

First off, I give my thanks to You for all the blessing you’ve given me. I don’t deserve most of them and yet I received a rather generous portion of blessings. Whether those are truly given or a product of the world at large, I still give my thanks to You. 

Thank You…

I wish that I could say with utter conviction that I am dedicating my life to You. You know my heart and the doubts and the questions that linger there. In the end, the only thing I can do is to ask for Your mercy for my life and the decision making I’ve adopted that is faulty at best. 

I love You and question You at times… forgive me for my doubting mind and my wayward heart… for the decisions I’ve made in the past and the decisions I’ll make in the future… 

I pray for the world. May You continue to shower them with love even when many live lives that run against your ideals. Give wisdom to men that they may realize the folly of their madness…

Protect the children and the innocent that continually suffer…

Ease that pain of women and mothers who labor under the yoke of life…

Reward the gentle men who live up to You…

Remind all those who go astray of their ways…

Grant the prayers of good people. 

Give women who ask for good husbands who’ll love them as you’ve loved men and give them the wisdom to see. 

Give a mother her wish of a good child and guide her hand to lead a new life into You.
Give dads the wisdom to honor the oath they’ve made in marriage and the strength to weather all the troubles of life.

Rebuke the bad people and lead them back to see You.

As for me, I pray that I don’t become an instrument that will lead someone else to go astray. I don’t ask for heaven for maybe that is too high a wish to ask… but let me not be the reason that another soul takes the wrong path. Show me the wisdom to prevent that from ever happening for that is a fate that will break my soul if that comes into fruition. Let me not be the temptation or the devil’s advocate to someone…

I don’t know what my life will be…

Or whether I’ll be deserving of your mercy in the time of judgment…

Thank You for my life…

All honor and glory are Yours forever…

Amen.
