My Prayer...Dear God - Poem by Shelly Price

Here I am now before you...
and on bended knee I pray.
Please won't you forgive me...
for living my life this way.

It has taken me so very long...
for my blind eyes to finally see.
The road I now choose to travel...
is paved with promise just for me.

I want to humbly thank you God...
for always standing by my side.
I no longer wish to deny the truth...
nor do I feel the need to hide.

I accept your forgiving mercy...
and trust the power of your voice.
I thank you God for my free will...
knowing I always have a choice.

I ask you God to show me love...
and give me patience to understand.
Strengthen me in my trust for you...
and guide me with your loving hand.

Allow me God to accept each day...
as an opportunity to do thy will.
Open my heart and fill it with love...
let my past rest quiet and be still.
