Silent Prayer

A silent prayer each early morn 
as I'm lying in my bed,
A prayer that God will help me
as I struggle through my day.
When I was little, Mama taught me,
God had angels by my side,
who would fold their wings around me,
as I tried hard to be good.
In school, I turned to Him,
as I sent a silent prayer before each test, 
that no unknown word would be included
and that I'd studied all the rest.
I made A's on my test papers
and won the spelling bee,
and knew that God was listening
and the angels were still near.
I have lived a long, long time since then
and I have had my share of woe. 
I have lost so many  friends
and all of my original family,
but I have learned to trust my God 
and know He will be there
to help me through my troubles
and  the wings of His angels still hold me.

And those Angels dance on your pen Joyce. Silence is how he speaks to us, so we can hear his voice. <3 :)

This is beautifully written, Joyce. It is faith that gets us through the hard times, especially lost family members. To go through so much and still believe in something we can't see is really quite remarkable. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
