My Prayer Pt 1

Jesus am down here right on my knees in your holy sanctuary To speeak to you through my prayers cos I don't want to be stationary. I ain't a mercenary who has the love for money, But Am here to pray for my foes and the devil's obituary. Am like Hannah who went to Shiloh To pray without laying on a pillow Her prayers weighed more than a kilo And samuel became her hero Am here like Hannah with a heart that is heavy with so much burden I don't know how it came,but it came so very sudden. But still am here with a contrite heart,my words I ain't gonna chew, Am going to say it out as clear as the morning dew. Please forgive me my sins and my iniquity, Disregard how big or small and its propensity, Your vicinity is where I wanna be cos of its transparency, Give me a change of heart and also a new identity, Lord help me not to speak profanity and wish for vanity, Cos vanity upon vanity will always yield vanity. I pray my goals and aspirations you help to proliferate, And not for my visions and dreams to begin to emanciate. Though the hard times is kinda giving me a great K.O, Your strenght is all I need so I can challenge them blow for blow. Lord I know I've been asking for so many wishes,like riches, But all those riches have come with so many stiches. Lord help me seek first your kingdom, That will come in the next millenieum, Cos the reality of it is left to my own wisdom. Lord the enemy never stop strategizes with his devices, Guide me from all his vices, And all those spiritual crisis. Cos I get scared sometimes I don't know what will happen tommorow, I pray is not something bad that will bring me so much sorrow. Jesus,I have friends who might not stay, I want friends who'll stay come what may, A friend in you who,ll make my life turn blue, Aam waiting for the day to lay my eyes on you and be more like you. Lord I want to go so higher like you, And shine so brighter like you, I want to be so greater like you, Am on my knees now speaking to you, Cos right now this my prayer at quarter past two.
