As I kneel beside my bed
I hold my hands and bow my head.
I pray for guidance from above.
And to protect the ones I love.
I pray for family and for friends
I pray for peace, before this world ends.
I pray for children one and all
That they are safe while growing tall.
I pray for all that love is shown
I pray for those all left alone.
I pray for sickness to be cured
I pray that pain be just a word.
I pray that violence comes to an end
And learn the meaning of what is a friend.
I pray for loved ones gone ahead
As I hold my hands and bow my head.
If God should take me while I rest
Will my family know I tried my best?
And that I will be watching from above
Forever sending them my love.
I ask for strength while I am here
To give me hope and face my fears.
To give me courage to overcome
What lies before me and not to run.
I thank you Lord for this day
And for my life in every way.
