My Prayer - Poem by Dawn Ferrett

You were there when, in my darkest hours,
My mind was full of dread.
You were at my side, through thick and thin,
Though fainter hearts had fled.
Lord, you wiped away my silent tears,
And held me till they dried,
And You lent me Your wise counsel,
When in You I did confide.
When my Faith was at its lowest ebb,
God, You erased all doubt,
And when I couldn't find my way,
Your guidance helped me out?
When pain and sadness swept me up
In torrents of emotion,
Yours were the harbour lights I saw
On the crest of a cruel ocean.
Whenever I was at wit's end,
And needed consolation,
You always gave me courage
To fight through my desolation.
Your constancy has always been
My strength, my motivation.
A plan by which to live my life.
Make each day a celebration.

Dear God, to whom I owe much more than I could repay in a thousand lifetimes, I thank you for your never ending Love, and I pledge to you my heart, my soul and every fibre of my being, for now and evermore,
