A Sinner's Prayer

Lord: I know I don’t look to you enough, Even though I should I know I don’t always do the right things Even though I should I know I am a sinner I know these things But I also know, That you, Lord…will answer my prayers And so I pray to you, To ease her heart…her burdens My best friend…so tormented, so afraid. Please Lord, I ask you, To watch over her, and protect her, and heal her I pray that she find the happiness that she deserves Lord We both know she’s better than I So please Lord, Ease her heart… Take her burdens and cast them upon me We both know I deserve them So Lord, I ask that you do these things for her Because she needs them and deserves it I pray to you Lord for your help And I thank you Lord Amen…
