A prayer to God.
My Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please forgive me for all my sins.
Without Your grace I can't begin,
To get this life close to within.
All that's right, Lord, help me win.
For Your name's sake, not for my own.
I've made mistakes, it's time to grow.
Help me to write but not for show.
Help me to fight so others know.
Help me focus on the now,
Help me make it Lord, somehow.
My past is gone and now erased.
Help so my future holds your face.
Your humbled servant, under grace.
Help me make it to that place.
The only place I long to be.
I'll walk with You, You'll talk with me.
That place with love and perfect peace.
That place above I can't yet see.
That place called heav'n, my heart's desire.
Pure perfection, not the fire.
Please pave my way, I beg of You.
In all I pray, please make me new.
I ask in Jesus's precious name,
