My Prayer

A Poem by T. L. O'Neal

I wrote this early one morning before the sun came up and was in a peaceful state of mind.


My Prayer

Written by: T. L. O’Neal


We ask you Lord to bless the tired and weak

And to honor the spiritual and the meek


Heal the sick and the old

Look after the hungry and the cold


Help the poor to afford to live

And give people the compassion to forgive


Show the way to those that’s lost

Take away their anguish at any cost


Help us to be strong and on our feet

For one day it’s you that we’ll meet


Help those whose spirit is broken

Open up the skies and show them heaven


Help those with pain in so many ways

Bring them joy to live and obey


Help us who’s afraid of the dark

To light our way through life’s spiritual park


Help us to love one another

To accept each other as our brother


Help us spread your love around

And pick them up when they’re down


Help those who cannot see

Open their eyes for they can be free


God love us one and all

From the short to the very tall


With this Lord we do pray

Bless us with another day

though i'm not religious i found waht you were saying, i'm almost all of those people, so i guess i need prayin!

but seriously this is good, how do you think people's poems become authorized creeds, ya know things people pray as standards they were probably poems before that, i never figured it out

anyway good poem/prayer

Can't believe it's been 3 years since I've reviewed this one. It made quite an impact on me. It hit me squarely in the heart before and did again. Beautiful and so infinitely spiritual and honest. Kudos again. - Mimi.

This is truly one of the most touching and heartfelt expressions of faith, love, hope, understanding, compassion, and devotion that I have ever read! What a blessing, and what tremendous talent you have....this surely comes straight from a heart of love!!
Thank you so much for sharing your time of peace with us!!

Your glorious prayer hits me in the heart. How tender and beautiful. We can only look around at all the types and kinds of flowers and the variety of fish alone to see God's creations and blessings for us. I never want to take God out when I need Him and put Him back for a rainy day...He's not a convenience. Your poem shows the unselfishness and reaches to what the world needs, to think of those without. This is an adoring treasure!

I started writing as a way to work out my feelings and found that I enjoyed it very much. I enjoy humor and feel that you can find it in most things, even though it may be hard to find at the moment. .. more..
