Something to Think About


I PRAY BECAUSE...

I pray because I am young; inexperienced;
And there is my whole life ahead of me
And to be able to travel and journey this road of life
--I NEED STRENGTH.

I pray because there is much confusion in my life;
And to know what is right
--I NEED GUIDANCE.

I pray because I have my own doubts and uncertainties
And to keep growing in my faith
--I NEED ENCOURAGEMENT.

I pray because I must make decisions;
Sometimes serious and crucial decisions,
But the choices are not always clear
--SO I NEED DIRECTION.

I pray because many times I feel so lost, down, troubled,
lonely, lost-at times wanting to give up.
And to keep going
--I NEED COMFORT AND CONSOLATION.

I pray because there are things which I do not understand;
cannot comprehend and I become afraid- like pain, suffering,
injustice, death-EVIL all around me-
And to be able to face and deal with them
--I NEED COURAGE.

I pray because at times I grow proud, vain,
arrogant-conceited
And to be reminded of my true nature-a sinful creature
--I NEED TO BE HUMBLED.

I pray because I have come to realize
That most of what I have were just given to me-
and they are not really mine
--AND SO I MUST GIVE THANKS.

But most of all, I pray because
JESUS, OUR LORD, HIMSELF PRAYED to the Father,
To our Father,
And if He considered it of value... so must I.
