My Prayer to God

My prayer to God is what I seek
To heal my spirit from grief
Grant me the strength when sadness fills my heart
And wipe my tears when I fall apart

God, give me the guidance to be able to succeed
And grant me the peace of mind I so desperately need
The courage to stand up for what I believe
To fight for the right and have peaceful life to live

Grant me, oh lord, to express myself without fear
To spread the word of cheer
When hope is lost and faith is shattered
When I have lost every battle that mattered

So grant me, oh God, the serenity to accept things
And the wisdom to know the difference
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace
For to see good put in action is what everybody needs

Grant me, oh Lord, a deed of kindness,
I am eager to be kind
When a weaker brother stumbles
And the strong man stays behind

We are supposed to have faith,
But not base it on much
I need more than that;
I want something I can touch

I know this dark night will soon end in day
I will laugh again and play
Someday the spring will come so soon
Our faith regains and shines like moon

"The true test of character are genuine testimonials, not from the upper higher part of the society - those who are in power, but rather from the ordinary people - those who are in the lower and lowest part of the society. They may be regarded by many as mew and insignificant but they will only speak of the truth without hesitation."

PRAY. Live a life with HUMILITY. What you do to the least of my brothers you do unto me.... these are words from God. We tend to be nice to people in power, people who we feel we will benefit from and cruel to those who are what we call as helpers etc. We create a facade, a mirror of two faces. Your character is best conveyed to the least of your fellow men.

Because sometimes we waste our time chasing something that is not meant for us, while we ignore what God has prepared for us."
