Prayer Poem

Prayer To Focus On God

I wrote this poem back on 11/11/99, during a time that I was a young single mom raising two boys, and we were going through a transition of being without their father. I wanted God to keep that peace that I needed to guide them into being successful young men, which they are today. I also wanted to stay on the straight and narrow path that God was taking me on.

Dear God, I Have A Prayer Today


Published: November 2015

Dear God, I have a prayer today.
Please Lord, do not let me go astray.
Teach me to share your love with others.
Give me peace to spread to my sisters and brothers.

Dear God, I have a prayer today.
Make me better than I was yesterday.
Show me how to give you the time you need,
Lord, without the constant plead.

Dear God, I have a prayer today.
Forgive me for my sins, I pray,
Even the ones I contemplate.
Cover me with your love and grace
Until I see your loving face.
