A Special Prayer For Melvina

Poem by David Harris

Dear Lord I come to you for help,
to help a good friend in need.
Her name is Melvina Germain,
a sister of the faith.
It would seem she needs
some help to strengthen her mind.
She told me she feels
her mind is weak
in all the things she wants to do.
She needs your inner strength
to help her to get through each day.
She needs your blessing
for the things she want to do.
She has given others the strength to carry on
when they were bewildered
by circumstances facing them.
Now it is she,
who needs to find the help.
Dear lord grant her
that inner peace and the strength of mind
she so desperately needs.
May I also include in this prayer My Lord
a blessing for Melvina’s daughter
who could do with a blessing from you
to help her succeed with her art
that gives pleasure to everyone
who gazes upon her work
and to Melvina who is following
in her daughter’s footsteps
with her new creative outlet there.
So please dear Lord could you answer this prayer.
