My God Almighty

My God Almighty high up above
Please hear my prayer for peace, protection, and love

Although in my life you know I have sinned
You also know where I am going
Where I am, and where I've been

For I pray to you Lord, not only in my sorrows 
Nor only when I am in pain
But even in times of peace and joy
My prayers are never in vain


I know that you love me, for I am your child
And you have never turned me away
Not even when I have stumbled
Or have clearly lost my way


I ask you Lord to see me through 
This world so very cold
And I ask that you protect not only the Saints 
But the weak, poor, young, and the old

Protect the defenseless babies
Left crying in the night
Abandoned, hungry, and cold 
Screaming out to you with all their might


Protect the innocent children
Left crying deep inside
From eternal wounds that will never heal
No matter how hard they try

Give peace and love to these children Lord
For they never had a chance
Against the overwhelming evil in this world
Please give them reasons to sing, and dance 

Please Lord protect the old
For they have served their time
And now they are weak, and very tired 
And some have not even a dime

Protect the poor from disease
From hunger and devastation 
Protect the ones who are left to perish 
Those ignored by wealthy nations

Protect the men, women, and children
Who are left wandering in the street
Facing not only the danger of illness
But of crimes against them, and having nothing to eat



Bless them with your warmth my Lord
When they are facing the coldest days
Please guide your loving angels to keep them
Safe and warm wherever they stay


Protect the defenseless creatures
Slaughtered for profit and gain
Hear their cries to you my Lord
For they cry to you in agony, and in pain

They are the ones of other nations
Who share this web of life
Who are surely deserving of your love
And eternal light

I ask these things of you my Lord
For only you and I surely know
Of the things that are so troubling
This pained and tired soul

You are my silent witness
To the things my eyes have seen
For you have walked with me 
On this long, winding road 
And everywhere in between

Thank you Lord, for hearing my prayers
As I know you always will
For I know that you will love me always
I am forever your child, Camille.
