A Prayer - Poem by Samantha Williams

I pray Lord that you'll restrain me
When someone lashes out to hurt
Don't allow me to bid revenge
But teach me to avert

Teach me to love unconditionally
Teach me always to care
Teach me to teach good things
Things that will always be there

I pray for wisdom that will bring peace,
I pray for the understanding that will bring love,
I pray for heavenly blessings
that will come from our Father above.

Bless me with faith, O Lord
To make this prayer come true
Bless me with the strength and courage, O Lord
To follow after you.
