MY PRAYER FOR A SPECIAL LADY: a poem by ed



LORD, before I forget it and start thanking you
for all my blessings on this Thanksgiving Day
I need to bring up a matter of great importance
that I promised some folks not to forget to do.

LORD, I know all prayer is really about your will,
but I am asking that your will be as simple
as looking in on this lady in Georgia
and agreeing with me that she has suffered enough.

LORD, I am asking you to make it your will
to give her some healthy years now.
To put a smile back on her husband’s face.
To use your healing power here and now.

LORD, I know this may be overstepping my bounds,
but this is my prayer for them.
I know you have the power
if it is your will to do what I ask.

LORD, I am a lucky and thankful man.
I woke up again today beside Patty.
Everyone needs a Patty, but you gave her to me.
Thank you.

IN YOUR SON’s NAME AMEN!
