Prayer - Poem by Miss Thang
Last night I laid next to you and said in my prayers,
“God, it’s me, Angie, can I talk to you? Are you there?
Lord, thank you for sending me this glorious man.
And please help me to be the best wife I can.
Thank you for his patience with me
Sometimes I know it can’t be easy.
He continues to be patient and forgive me too
Even after some of the stupid things I do.
I know he fights demons in his sleep,
So if you can just be with him please
Keep him safe and help him find some peace.
Be with my husband tonight while he sleeps.
It’s so important to me that we succeed in this.
It’s something I have to MAKE happen, not just wish.
So, whatever it takes, and whatever he needs,
Lord, please help me learn how to be
Trusting and patient, understanding and kind
Not just occasionally, but all of the time.
Teach me how to be more like you
Teach me how to love him more like you do.
Help me to be the things that I’m not
Remind me to appreciate the things that we’ve got
Not only the things, but the people too
Please keep our focus to be on you.
And Lord, please help me guide our kids and give them love.
And will you please keep an eye on them from up above?
Thank you, Lord, for keeping us safe on our drive.
And thank you for being with our kids, Lord, all five.
I am so grateful for where you’ve allowed me to be
And all of the joy you’ve allowed me to see
I’m so far from where I could have wound up
And for that, Lord, I can’t thank you enough.
So, tonight as I lay down to sleep next to my best friend
I can’t ask for any more than I have. Thank you, Lord, Amen.”
