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

Amen

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.

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..
