Dear heavenly Father, with heartfelt prayer,
I come to you, with my every care.
This day was long and offered despair,
so I open my heart, in great need of repair.
The world is dark and comes closing in,
but in turning to you, I know I shall win.
Your grace and mercy covered all of my sin,
when I walk in your love I shall always win.
Yet, sometimes I forget you've given me grace,
sometimes I forget, your loving embrace.
I forget to hide in your resting place,
your words in my mind, I seem to misplace.
Hear now my Father my desperate call,
my heart is heavy, for I did fall.
In the face of the world I seem so small,
the pressure increases, my problems are tall.
I know you forgave me and made me pure,
for I am your child, of this I am sure.
Thank you dear Father for having the cure,
so my heart can withstand and daily endure.
Thank you dear Father for your Word of peace,
a Word that delivers and will truly release.
You back up your Word, you never will cease,
to bless your children and give the increase.
Thank you for showing me the way to success,
by remembering how it's you that does bless,
my very life with your every caress,
healing my heart so that I effervesce.
