My Prayer

Dear Lord, thank you for today;
 Walk beside me, all the way
 Keep me safe from all that would
 cause me heartache, if it could

 Guard my eyes and ears, and lips
 Give me strength, to come to grips,
 With each problem I must face,
 And some courage, just in case

 Help me, Lord, to make amends; to those I may have hurt
 So often without thinking, remarks I make, or curse
 Teach me to be sensitive to other person's needs
 That I may speak with kindness, and follow with this creed

 I count that day, as wisely spent;
 In which I do some good,
 For someone who is far away
 or shares my neighborhood

 A day devoted to the deed
 That lends a helping hand
 And demonstrates a willingness
 To care and understand.
