I Pray, I Give Thanks

Dear God,

I am sorry for my sins.

Forgive me for every cuss words that I have uttered, for every malice filled coversation that I had, and placing my name first above yours.

Thank you for giving me strength, for giving me the chance to celebrate life everyday.  Thank you for my husband and my babies.  Thank you for my family, friends and enemies.  Thank you for keeping us safe all the time.

I pray Lord God for peace. Peace in my heart and peace to the whole wide world.  I pray for strength to wake up each day with a smile. I pray for patience Oh Lord.  I pray for good health and good relationship for our family and extended family,  friends and enemies alike.

I pray Papa God that You continue to live in our hearts. That Your unending love and blessings be with us always.

Thank you Mama Mary for giving us your son.

I love you Lord and goodnight.

Amen.

Dear God

Dear God,

I have been amiss in my obligations as a Christian.  I have not been a good disciple for quite some time.  I have judged, cursed, used your name in vain and questioned my existence.  I am only but human, with its limitations and inadequacies.  

No matter how I have been, you still have gifted me with the most wonderful treasure, my children.  

I thank you dear Lord God for giving me the reason to go on living.  The reason to wake up each morning with a bright smile.  The wonderful treasures that you have given me is more than enough compensation for all the perceived hurts, heartaches that I went through to be in my position now.  

The treasures that you have entrusted me sometimes challenges me to a screaming point but a single tear drop that fall from their eyes is like a thousand daggers piercing my heart. No pain from betrayal, broken heart equates that.

Amongst our daily lives, good and bad things can happen.  And I not only thank you Lord for my children but also for keeping us safe.  My husband who works hard for us.  Our parents and our siblings.  Our extended families.  You have kept us in your bosom, safe and away from any harm.

With this I offer more prayers O Lord, for those people who are in the midst of turmoil, Syria, the Gaza strip, for all victims of atrocities, natural disasters and man made ones, people who’ve been involved and or affected by accidents and the tragedy that just happened in Newtown, Connecticut.  I know that what I have mentioned here is only a tiny speck as compared to the rest of the world and that there are a lot more things happening that we will never know.  I pray that You give them strength and they be comforted by your words.

With bowed head O Lord God I pray that you continue to be present in our daily lives.  That you keep us firmly in your loving arms.  I ask forgiveness for all of my sins.  I have no excuse not even that of being a human with free will.  

I am sorry and thank you.

Your daughter.
