A Prayer (pt.2) the Soilder


Dear Heavenly Father
As the sun sets I come out for
our nightly talk
To discuss the decisions I shall make
in the streets that I stalk
I am far from a bad guy-gangsta
And in lacking this characteristic
I would like to thank ya
But in this game of survival
the actions that I will fulfill
will be the most vile
Please do guide me just
so that my spirit will continue
to grow bright
Strong I may be
But I am but a soldier
And with your help may I become
your streadfast boulder

In Jesus name I shall forever pray....Amen

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
