A Prayer Poem

Dear God

Let me

persevere even when it seems I can not go on anymore

but have the wisdom to know when some things are not worth my energy.


make the right decisions

stick to the right choices


be appreciative of the good and thankful for the bad

be happy in every aspect of my life

be humble and to trust in You

be the best that I am able to be.



have confidence as I go out in the world

have courage to stay on the path you have put out before me

have peace from within


love You

love myself

love every person whose life touches mine

whether they mean me well or mean me trouble



say the right word and do the right things to bless and comfort the people around me

learn from the experiences of others as well as the mistakes that I have made

know that You are near me with every step I take and every breath I breathe


Let me not be

regretful of the past

unheeding of the present

worried for the future



Let my

knowledge accumulate

wisdom strengthen

spirit grow

beauty shine from my heart



In order to become the person that I was meant to be



Protect and bless my, my family, and all those I love

  1. very revealing and honest. it grew well towards the end as well.

  2. I am deeply touched by this prayer. These are the very things in my life that I have/am/will stuggle with. Have you ever read or heard something that sparks spiritual growth in you? I would definitely say that this is one of those somethings and for that I thank you. I would also like to add that I love this website.
