Let us pray
Lord Jesus it is you, who wakes me up every day
And I am forever grateful for your love
This is why I pray

You let me touch so many people and it's all for the good
I influenced so many children, I never thought that I would
And I couldn't take credit for the love they get
Because it all comes from you, Lord
I'm just the one that's givin' it

And when it seems like the pressure gets to be too much
I take time out and pray and ask that you be my crutch
Lord, I am not perfect by a long shot, I confess to you daily
But I work harder everyday, and I hope that you hear me

In my heart I mean well but if you'll help me to grow
Then what I have in my heart will begin to show
And when I get goin', I'm not lookin' back for nothin'
'Cause I will know where I'm headed, I'm so tired of the sufferin'

I stand before you, a weakened version of your reflection
Beggin' for direction for my soul needs resurrection
I don't deserve what you've given me but you never took it from me
Because I am grateful and I use it and I do not worship money

If what you want from me is to bring your children to you
My regret is only having one life to do it, instead of two
Amen
