My Midnight Grace

As I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to take if I shall die before I wake please watch me God all through the night and wake me and my loved ones at morning light please help me become successful with the endeavors I seek please send me a soul mate in which I can keep everlasting love passionate heat please grant me the serenity to know right from wrong and be able to lead by example strive to overcome any downfall please keep my spirit strong through the issues that toil in my soul I aspire for diamonds in life lord and all around me I see coal I aspire to turn things around for I feel my wishes have fallen upon deaf ground my heart has no voice they struggle to hear my sound I pray to be taken away from my daily battles, that humble although compared to others in the world its not much trouble to me, I feel my spirit is caged and yearns to be free King of all Kings in your image, you made me you already know each single step my individual thought you divinely bound me in mothers womb my existence you sought bless me with the chance to be the person in which you hoped for me to soar like an eagle dipping my talons of success in life's sea grant me an optimistic attitude for that is the key Amen to Thee

Wonderful inspirational Heather.. very emotional write too.. as far as all the things asked for I always relay on Psalm 37 .. read it daily.. verse 4 says HE WILL give u the desires of your own heart.. if we give ourselves to HIM.. easy ..yet difficult ..but worth it.. I read it every day.. am finally home.. yeah... my LUV is staying this weekend and driving home Monday.. we live 328 miles apart.. talk about difficult..haha..luv..
