A Sunday Prayer 16
Dear God as I look out my window
after the hard morning rain
at the sunshine beginning to peek
through a sky of blue.
I want to thank you God
first for your son Jesus
who has shown us a better way,
but also a beautiful dawn each day.
Dear God I want to thank you
for all the good things in my life,
all my friends and family
of which I hold so dear.
Please could you forgive me
for my self-indulgent at times
when I only think of me?
When I ignore the needs of the world
and only think of mine. In addition,
for my grumbling selfishly
that the world is hard on me,
when I know full well
there are others worse of than me.
Dear God I would be more than grateful
if you could do these things for me,
and let me be a better person
that I really am.
