My Prayer

Mistakes are the only reason I found need to pray
But later I realized how much I had to say
Father please heal sister
She didn't ask for this
Father please remember the neighbor
she would truly be missed
Father I love my parents
I want to be with them forever
So please all I'm asking for, is how much more we have to suffer
Father he's my friend, he's your son
Why these temptations, why the long run?
Help him feel loved and know the glory which is to come
He's an angel and you're his guide
Lead him, carry him, stand by his side
Help me shine thy light to the darkened shadows
Help me stand for the right, fighting the blackened egos
I want to go home to what I remember
It will be a dream that will last forever
But if that's not an option, help me change mankind
Help me lead them to you, you they need to find
Forgive me, I am a weak child
Make my fears and weakness become so mild
I'm imperfect but through you I'm an imperfection made perfectly
Open my ears, move my feet, awaken my eyes and help me see
Take me back to where all is familiar
Love me father, be my savior
Heal me, direct me, always protect me
I'll be sure to drop in once again
This is my prayer, in His sacred name, amen
