My Prayer

My Prayer Dear Lord, thank you for today; Walk beside me, all the way Keep me safe from all that would cause me heartache, if it could Guard my eyes and ears, and lips Give me strength, to come to grips, With each problem I must face, And some courage, just in case Help me, Lord, to make amends; to those I may have hurt So often without thinking, remarks I make, or curse Teach me to be sensitive to other person's needs That I may speak with kindness, and follow with this creed I count that day, as wisely spent; In which I do some good, For someone who is far away or shares my neighborhood A day devoted to the deed That lends a helping hand And demonstrates a willingness To care and understand.
