Dear God, as I begin this day
Let me turn my thoughts to you
and ask Your help in guiding me
In everything I say and do.
Give me the patience that I need
To keep my piece of mind,
And with life's cares, I hope, Dear God,
Some happiness to find.
Let me live but for today,
Not worrying what's ahead,
For I have trust that You will see
I get my "Daily Bread".
Give me the courage to face life's trials
And not from troubles run,
Let me keep this thought in mind,
"Thy will, not mine, be done."
And if some wish I do not get
Though I have prayed to Thee,
Help me to believe and understand
You know what's best for me.
I've failed You many times, I know,
But when tonight I rest,
I hope that I can kneel and say
"Dear God, I've tried my best."
GOD doesn't need my ability, but my availability.
