A Fool's Prayer

Dear God I hope that I have pleased you today,
And that my words have led no one astray.
I pray my tongue Lord, you'd take control,
For I am tired God of being a fool.
Forgive me where I've sinned in thought and in mind.
Help me to be humble, loving, and kind.
So that when I lay my head down to rest,
I can have peace knowing I've done my best.
With the knowledge I had at that point and time,
So I pray dear Lord I'll speak your words and not mine.
