MY PRAYER number 15

Dear Lord,

I’ve lost control
I let the wheel go
Now I’m headed for a crash and burn
I don’t know where to turn
When will I ever learn
Always walking in a line of sin
I can’t help it
I know I’ll keep walking it again and again
I’m easily tempted by things of this world
And you know all the wrong I’ve done
So many wrongs I speak them to no one
I’m uneasy father and un-rested
Tell me how long will I be tested
And when I’m through will I pass
I can hear the devil laugh
He knows I won’t last
I’m afraid it might true
That’s why once again I kneel before you
This time I really don’t know what to do
I know I’ll continue to sin
And I know you’ll continue to forgive
Too many times I’ve been forgiven
Father I don’t deserve to be liven
Especially if I’m not living according to you
I try to fight my temptations
And trying to do good I loose my concentration
So I end up walking into new tribulations
I know I won’t do what is always right
The guilt eats at me when I sleep at night
But I try father the best I can
So I humble myself and tell you yes I am a weak man
I’m not whole without you by my side
I can’t fight the devil alone
I know
I tried
I should of never back slid the first time
Forgive me and don’t forsake me
And I will always praise thee
I know your there through everything
Your love is so amazing
Watch over me
