Birthday Prayer

Lord, please give me strength to live

The kind of life you alone can give.

Strength to be the woman who

Will never, ever waver in you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lord please give me hope to see,

The future you have made for me.

Hope to press on when its bleak

When I always you will seek.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lord please give me wisdom so I-

Won’t forget why you came to die.

Wisdom to recall when life is smooth

How You made mountains move.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lord please wisdom so guidance I will hear

When a thousand voices are in my ear.

Guidance to find and follow Your way

When its too dark to see by light of day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lord please give me love

Greatest of all fruits above.

Love not just for enemies

But for friends and family.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is my Birthday wish I prayed

Me a humble undeserving maid.

Yet this maid of seventeen,

Thou has’t called a lovely queen.

  1. Mindy, I absolutely love it. Beautifully written, and it has enormous meaning behind it.

    “Wisdom to recall when life is smooth

    How You made mountains move.”

    Great job, and keep it up!
